Consent tech: creating sustainable Real Consent

26th September 2016 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm


This event is being organised by the Personal Data & Trust Network’s ‘consent’ working group, which is co-chaired by Mark Lizar and Richard Beaumont. The group’s focus is on innovating and engineering consent at scale for personal data sharing. The last event Real Consent and a Look at Trust was held in May, which delved deep into the systemic issues underlying current technology for consent and trust for personal data sharing.

This next event will present emerging and established consent tech as well as the consent tech summer projects inspired by the Real Consent workshop series. Including:

  • Digital Catapult’s concierge system upgrade, including the first ever digital consent receipt issued for physical spaces, provided to new visitors upon signing in

We’ll be discussing with workshop participants who are interested, to investigate how the consent-based personal data-sharing ecosystem could grow and what could be the joint action to develop such an ecosystem. This will be with the requisite that they are members of the Personal Data & Trust Network.

This workshop is aimed at people working in SMEs, social enterprises, service and solutions providers, consumer-focused organisations, public bodies, research bodies and funding organisations who share the value of and want to help develop these interventions and interested in pledging to adopt consent receipts and the open consent framework.

We anticipate that those attending will be/become members of the Personal Data & Trust Network prior to the event. You can join at http://pdtn.org. The PD&TN will be the first to test, try out and get access to use the prototypes being produced.
