Call for Participants to Attend the SPRITE+ Virtual Sandpit on Trust, Identity, Privacy, and Security in the post-Covid Digital Economy
Deadline: 16 June 2020
Applications are invited from SPRITE+ Members and Expert Fellows (academic and non-academic) to join our online Sandpit on Trust, Identity, Privacy, and Security in the post-Covid Digital Economy in July 2020.
Up to £100,000 of SPRITE+ funding will be made available to fund interdisciplinary projects arising from this sandpit.
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?
The Sandpit will be run virtually, at the following times and dates:
