The Second Annual General Assembly of the MAPPING Project will be held in Prague, Czech Republic, on 31 October – 2 November 2016. The event is entitled „Online business, Security and Fundamental Human Rights – Enabling trust on the Internet“.
On 14 March 2016 the MAPPING project successfully concluded the Privacy via IT Security App Competition with a highly anticipated Award Ceremony at the CeBIT 2016 exhibition. The two-hour event included key-notes from distinguished guests on topics related to privacy as well as demonstrations of the three winning proposals. The programme was concluded by the announcement of the competition’s overall winner.
The Round Table on Future Scenarios of Personal Data Use in Commercial and Non-Commercial Settings took place on 18 February 2016 in Malta. It was organised by the MAPPING’s Work Package 5 (Privacy, Personality & Business Models) leader, the Institute for Legal Informatics, Leibniz University Hannover (DE). Full details of the Round Table are presented in deliverable D5.3 of the MAPPING Project
The evaluation procedure of the proposals submitted by innovators across Europe for the Privacy via IT Security App Competition (www.mapping-competition.uni-hannover.de) of the MAPPING Project (www.mappingtheinternet.eu) has just finished, and we are pleased to confirm three winning applications have been selected by a jury of recognised European experts
The Privacy via IT Security app competition deadline for submission of the proposal value proposition passed as the New Year was welcomed across Europe last Friday. A considerable number of highly innovative proposals waere received, making the jury’s task of selecting the three winning apps very challenging. The three winning competitors will attend the award ceremony and host a booth at Scale 11 at CeBIT 2016. Proposals came from many countries throughout Europe, and the diversity of the ideas received is very encouraging.
MAPPING project, December 1, 2015. A brand-new competition that gives young European innovators the chance to create or develop a contemporary app that will enhance privacy on mobile devices is underway. With a wide range of prizes awarded to the best proposals, including an amount of 20 000 EUR for the overall winner and the chance to deploy the winning app onto the market, this competition provides a great opportunity for talented individuals with inspiring ideas to get involved in online security.
