Designing personal data ownership

27-9-18 20:00 - 27-9-18 22:30
Waag, Nieuwmarkt 4, 1012 CR Amsterdam

On this 'Do worry, be happy' evening we look at different ways in which people can gain more control over their personal data.

Various initiatives, including DECODE and the new Digital Identity Lab, present their solutions. These presentations provide insight into what is possible in this area and how these initiatives can work together, build on and reinforce each other.

Together with the participants, the interaction design of these applications is discussed. How they can ensure that through a better design more people can get back ownership over their personal data in a user-fiendly way?

The programme details of this evening will be announced shortly.

Eventbrite - Designing personal data ownership

Admission is € 5, - (including a drink). Buy a ticket through Eventbrite. This evening is mainly Dutch spoken. If there are non-native speakers, we may switch to English.

Do worry, be happy series

In the DO worry, be happy series, we enter into dialogue with experts from the field of technology, innovation and ethics about new developments. Do we have to worry and how do we keep control? DO worry, but be happy.


DECODE (Decentralized Citizens' Owned Data Ecosystem) is a European project, in which we want to demonstrate through pilot projects in Barcelona and Amsterdam that decentralized solutions on the internet - based on blockchain, openness and accessibility - can be a good working alternative for existing platforms.

The Digital Identity Lab looks for new ideas, concepts and concrete tools that can include a reliable and secure digital identity.
