How do we stay in control of our data?
There is a growing concern about the dependency of academia on Big Tech companies. How do we stay in control of our data? How can we make sure that data from academic institutions is used for the right purposes?
To respond to these urgent concerns, the Center for Information Technology (CIT) initiated a discussion in 2022 to explore possibilities through which the University of Groningen can gain more autonomy over its data. We call this Data Autonomy.
The "Let's talk Data Autonomy!" event on March 8 2023 was part of a series of events that took place in order to understand how the different groups within the UG understand the concept of Data Autonomy.
