DECODE: Data Sovereignty & Data Commons

Today’s Internet is becoming increasingly centralised, slowing down innovation and challenging its potential to revolutionise society and the economy in a pluralistic manner.

DECODE will develop practical alternatives through the creation, evaluation and demonstration of a distributed and open architecture for managing online identity, personal and other data, and collective governance in a citizen-friendly and privacy-aware fashion.

Strong digital rights that make it possible for data subjects to determine access rights to their information through flexible entitlements and open standard-based agreements regarding data governance (on the model of Creative Commons licenses) will be woven into the technological architecture.

This workshop is part of the first round of the break-out sessions (13:00-14:00h) of the day conference Next Generation Cities on Thursday June 21.
