Applications will be invited from SPRITE+ Members from any disciplinary background to join our online Sandpit on Trust, Identity, Privacy, and Security in the post-Covid Digital Economy, due to take place in July 2020.
Around £100,000 of SPRITE+ funding will be made available to fund interdisciplinary projects and pilot studies arising from this Sandpit.
The focus of this Sandpit will be Trust, Identity, Privacy, and Security in the post-Covid Digital Economy.
Questions we might address include (but are not limited to):
How do the responses of governments, businesses, and citizens to Covid-19 enable or mitigate new digital harms? How might we protect networks, hardware, individuals and organisations (etc.) from such harms and/or make them resilient in the face of harm?
How can ethics, regulation, policy, education etc. keep up with the pace of technological change?
How can legacy, present, and future technologies come together to form a post-Covid digital ecosystem that works for everyone?
As in-person events are currently impossible, we will work with our partners at Know Innovation to deliver this workshop entirely online. We understand that full-day virtual events can be tiring for participants and might be difficult for those with caring responsibilities, so we will split this Sandpit into a number of sessions in July. The first meeting will serve as an opportunity for participants to get to know each other in an informal setting.
Call for Events is now open! We're supporting Members and Expert Fellows to lead activities that explore aspects of TIPS in the Digital Economy. We will help to organise the activity with up to £5,000 to cover the associated costs.
