New and Emerging Data Forms – Ethical Guidance Workshop


EMPOWER and HABITS are pleased to host the following workshop in collaboration with the Cabinet Office.

The aim of the workshop is to review and consider real-world applications of the ethical frameworks to be used in the generation, processing and analysis of new and emerging data types including data generated using new technology such as mobile apps and social media.

The workshop will review the existing Cabinet Office Data Science Ethical Framework and a new ethics tool developed by the EMPOWER project. These will be road-tested in light of the new General Data Protection Regulation to be rolled out 25th May 2018, and against a range of user needs.

This workshop will provide those attending with the opportunity to review how you currently use data, provide clear guidance on data usage, and practical support and skills for ethical data management. We invite participants to bring examples of the types of data you are working with, or intend to work with (anonymised and non-confidential), to share in the discussion sessions.

This workshop is intended to bring together and use the expertise of key policy and practitioner stakeholders, active researchers and data scientists with experience of using new forms of data. We are inviting an audience of those working in areas utilising new technologies and data and encountering sensitive data from apps and social media and other online methods. The aim will be to have a range of stakeholders with experience of user needs.

This workshop is free, however places are limited. Closing date for applications is: 21st March 2018. Register here.
