A spotlight on the most recent activity in The Institute for Law and the Web (ILAWS).

Horizon 2020 FutureTrust Project Success

The Horizon 2020 FutureTrust research project on Future Trust Services for Trustworthy Global Transactions has been successful and is proceeding to grant application. The University of Southampton research team is led by Dr Sophie Stalla-Bourdillon.

The FutureTrust project aims to support the implementation of the regulation 2014/910/EU on electronic identification (eID) and trusted services for electronic transactions in the internal market (eIDAS) by in particular deriving the legal and technical implications of the interoperability requirement and developing trust models, software components and services to make interoperability a reality.

New Social Web Project

The pump-priming project "Observing and Recommending from a Social Web with Biases" led by Dr Sophie Stalla-Bourdillon and Prof Steffan Staab (ECS), will start on 26 January.

The project aims to develop a model for representing norms describing undesirable biases against sensitive data attributes and metrics for describing situations of norm violation and compliance.

Anonymisation Project

The pump-priming project on Anonymisation practices led by Dr Kieron O'Hara (ECS) and Dr Sophie Stalla-Bourdillon has just started.

The project team will run two workshops, in March 2015 and July 2016 bringing together lawyers and technologists to focus on legal definitions of personal data, and the effects of openness on anonymised data. These will enable a preliminary enumeration of key issues, and identification of further stakeholders.

The March workshop will look at a range of issues about anonymisation and technology, while the July one will focus on openness.
