Research projects to build trust, privacy and security in use of personal data and digital technologies
Recent media reports about the use and exploitation of personal data have increased public awareness of the benefits and drawbacks of the digital age.
This area has been a research priority for the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), which is now part of the newly formed UK Research and Innovation (UKRI).
In 2017 EPSRC called on researchers to submit proposals for projects that would further the understanding of Trust, Identity, Privacy and Security (TIPS) issues in the Digital Economy.
The aspiration was to support interdisciplinary research, across the spectrum of technological, economic, cultural, social, legal, ethical, design, behavioural and political disciplines, to engage with those who use research outputs, from industry to charities to communities.
