Session “From Strategy to Practice – Data Intermediaries in the EU” at the MyData Online 2020

The session focuses on current challenges to making trusted data intermediaries a reality in terms of scalability, functionality and adoption. Two short introductory statements are followed by three presentations, all of which illuminate various aspects of trusted intermediaries and PIMS:

(1) highlight the standardization challenges of implementable consent tools (legal/governance perspective),
(2) zoom in on practical and technical challenges exemplified by the PIMcity Project, and
(3) touch upon user interface perspectives and legal design solution approaches.

The goal is to highlight key elements of MyData Operators and aspects of the EU Data Strategy for making such models realistic. To investigate the alignment of the EU Data Strategy with theoretical models and spur a discourse about the necessary steps for creating legal, technological and market conditions to support the emergence of data intermediaries in practice.

The Legal Design Roundtable

EVENT DESCRIPTION

The Legal Design Roundtable is a 2-days forum for discussion.
Papers will be shared among the participants (speakers and attendants) before the event. All participants are expected to read and be prepared to discuss the contributions.

DAY 1 (Wednesday, April 1) will be dedicated to the presentation of the accepted contributions. The roundtable is meant to be highly dynamic and the discussion will be facilitated by one or more moderators per session. This event is going to be open to the public.
DAY 2 (Thursday, April 2) will be devoted to the discussion of the draft paper “Legal Design Methodology: A Blueprint” (see below, section “Outcome”). The participation to this event is reserved to the accepted contributors only.

OUTCOME

The expected outcome of the Legal Design Roundtable is a collective paper on the methodological foundations of legal design that will summarise the results of the discussion. The paper will be published in an international peer-reviewed journal and available in open access.
A draft of the paper, prepared by the scientific committee, will be shared among the selected participants before the event. Such a draft will contain a first elaboration of the main inputs coming from the accepted contributions. Authors will be invited to comment and make suggestions to the draft on April 2, 2020.
Authors are free to re-publish their input methodological papers and legal design project outlines after the roundtable.

Panel on “GDPR Data Protection Icons and Transparency: Where do we stand?” at the CPDP-2020

Panel description:

Several research institutions, industries and public bodies are currently creating icon sets to enhance the transparency of personal data processing according to Art. 12 sect. 7 GDPR. Prior to possible adoption and standardization by the Commission according to sect. 8, however, the EDPB calls for an evidence-based approach to determine the efficacy of such icons. The emerging approaches follow different methodologies and goals. This panel brings together different stakeholders and takes stock of the emerging initiatives to identify the next steps for more effective transparency with a particular focus on privacy icons.

  • Which current initiatives of privacy icons exist and how do they differ?
  • What is the current state of research on the efficacy of privacy icons and transparency in general?
  • What are the next steps, in particular, towards EU standardization of icons?

PIP Expert Workshop

The Research Group “Data as a Means of Payment” invited around 20 experts to discuss several aspects of its ongoing research project on privacy icons (PIP). The goal of the project is to develop a tool for improving the decision-making process of users in consent situations by conveying via icons relevant information about data processing aspects that might entail risks to the interests of users.
