Privacy and Identity Lab (Pl.lab)
TILT is one of the founding participants in the Privacy and Identity Lab (Pl.lab), together with Radboud University Nijmegen's Department of Computer Science, TNO and SIDN.
Part of its applied research on privacy, data protection and identity management is being performed within Pl.lab.
Network of Centers
TILT participates in the Network of Centers. A group of academic centers launched the Network of Internet and Society Research Centers (“NoC” or “the Network”) in 2012. The Network of Centers is a collaborative initiative among academic institutions with a focus on interdisciplinary research on the development, social impact, policy implications, and legal issues concerning the Internet. This collective aims to increase interoperability between participating centers in order to stimulate the creation of new cross-national, cross-disciplinary conversation, debate, teaching, learning, and engagement regarding the most pressing questions around new technologies, social change, and related policy and regulatory developments.
"Coping with contemporary privacy issues requires a multidisciplinary approach; we need to understand the technology, ethical and legal landscape and business processes"
