DECODE is a European Commission funded project exploring and piloting new technologies that give people more control over how they store, manage and use personal data generated online. We will test the technology we develop in two pilot sites and will explore the social benefits of widespread open data commons.
QWhat positive social or environmental do you aim to generate?
DECODE is creating tools which will give people ownership of their data. These tools will combine blockchain technology with attribute-based cryptography to give the data owner control of how their data is accessed and used. This will help build a trustworthy and privacy-aware digital society.
QWhat has your organisation enabled so far in quantified terms (e.g. 20% efficiency gain, 100 beneficiaries received aid in the past six months) and what are the next steps?
QWhy are you specifically using blockchain in your project?
