eLaw – Centre for Law and Digital Technologies organizes a panel at the CPDP 2017
The Conference on Computers, Privacy and Data Protection (CPDP) is an annual world-leading multidisciplinary conference that takes place in January in Brussels. This year, eLaw, the Centre for Law and Digital Technologies of Leiden University, participates in the CPDP conference as one of the event’s partners and a panel’s organiser. In setting up a panel, eLaw has joint forces with the EU project EuDEco (in which eLaw is one of the partners).
The panel, which focuses on secondary data uses and privacy challenges, will be moderated by Dr. Bart Custers, Associate Professor and Head of Research at eLaw. eLaw’s researcher and PhD candidate Helena Ursic will contribute as a speaker together with three other guests from Germany, Belgium and Slovenia. Pernille Tranberg, an independent consultant and the author of “Data Ethics – The New Competitive Advantage” will chair the discussion.
The panellists will address a number of highly relevant and challenging legal and ethical issues. Among others, they will discuss the problem of potential interference with human rights protection, the role of technology in achieving personal data protection, the issue of individual control over secondary data use and the overlaps between data protection and other legal domains. The objective of the panel is to come up with suggestions and recommendations leading towards a sustainable and competitive data economy that meets the legal, ethical and economic requirements set by society.
Registration to the conference is still possible. More information about the event is available here.
