21 March 2017 • GDPR Workshop Series: Data protection and the energy sector: the example of smart grids 
 
The workshop, in co-operation with the Sparks Project at the Energie Institute, Linz, is aimed at increasing sensibility of data protection in the energy sector and to raise awareness. The example of smart grids, collecting sensitive information of individuals will play a central role in the workshop. Experts in the areas of energy and data protection will present their views, followed by an interactive discussion.  

A re-organisation of the energy market is on the way and related challenges are not quite clear yet. Who will be a service provider in the future market, who will collect data in the energy sector? What are the main challenges? 

How can the objective of more efficient energy use by individuals - sometimes enabled by big data analysis - be balanced with the need for privacy?

The programme is now available. 
 
The workshop will be held from 12:00 - 14:00 at the Institute of European Studies (Lower Ground Floor Institute for European Studies, VUB, Pleinlaan 5, 1050, Brussel).

Lunch will be included. 

The event is free to attend but capacity is limited, so registration is required. For more information please contact

5 May 2017 • Lunchtime Lecture - Data Ownership: A data protection perspective, Prof. Dr. Gloria Gonzalez Fuster

The notion of data ownership is surfacing more and more frequently in discussions about data policies, in particular at European level. As different types of knowledge production, the economy, and even our societies as such are increasingly portrayed as being 'data-driven', the issue of who can decide what happens to data (and with data) has become critical.  

 

This event will explore data ownership from the perspective of European personal data protection. It will consider questions such as: Are data subject rights a manifestation of any 'ownership' of personal data? How can such rights be reconciled with other concomitant types of 'ownerships', if any? Does the understanding of this notion vary in other legal frameworks? And what are the fundamental rights implications of these discussions? 

 

The event will be held from 12:00 - 14:00 at the Institute of European Studies (Lower Ground Floor Institute for European Studies, VUB, Pleinlaan 5, 1050, Brussel).

Lunch will be included.
