The e-SIDES project is looking for contributions to its Community Position Paper on responsible data-driven innovation written by and for the big data community.

e-SIDES is collecting community opinions related to the debate on how big data solutions can be developed and used in a responsible way, paying particular attention to the potential of privacy-preserving technologies.

By bringing together the viewpoints of stakeholders from different domains and with different expertise, e-SIDES aims to complement its research and stimulate further dialogue.

You are welcome to contribute to the Community Position Paper, which will be collaboratively produced on the e-SIDES online platform, by making suggestions directly in the text. In particular, we would appreciate your views on the challenges faced in this context and opportunities to overcome them.

About the e-SIDES project

Data-driven innovation is deeply transforming society and the economy. Although there are potentially enormous economic and social benefits, this innovation also brings new challenges for individual and collective privacy, security, as well as democracy and participation. The main objective of the CSA e-SIDES is to complement the research on privacy-preserving big data technologies, by analysing, mapping and clearly identifying the main societal and ethical challenges emerging from the adoption of big data technologies, conforming to the principles of responsible research and innovation; setting up and organizing a sustainable dialogue between industry, research and social actors, as well as networking with the main Research and Innovation Actions and Large Scale Pilots and other framework program projects interested in these issues. It will investigate stakeholders’ concerns, and collect their input, framing these results in a clear conceptual framework showing the potential trade-offs between conflicting needs and providing a basis to validate privacy-preserving technologies. It will prepare and widely disseminate community shared conclusions and recommendations highlighting the best way to ultimately build the confidence of citizens and businesses towards big data and the data economy.
