Data trusts offer a mechanism for individuals and groups to increase their influence over decisions about how, why and by whom data about them is used, using the fiduciary responsibilities associated with trust law to help bridge the gap between the aspiration to share data and concerns about individual rights.
Starting 17 December, at 1100 (est) a new seminar series from Indiana University's Ostrom Workshop will explore the potential of data trusts as a tool to tackle today's data governance challenges, and the action required to realize this potential.
The series will be hosted on zoom: https://iu.zoom.us/j/89337266302 (Meeting ID: 893 3726 6302) And will continue to occur on the THIRD THURSDAY of each month.
For preparation for the entire salon series, we would love if you would fill out the following basic survey: https://forms.gle/oZMFpgwc2N8AFPqV7
