IN3 experts sign a manifesto for data sovereignty and commons

08/04/2019

Last 1 April, more than fifty members of European research groups met in Barcelona to present and sign a manifesto for data sovereignty and commons, in a collective action to propose alternative data management models, which are more transparent and democratic. The event took place at Massana School, and it was organized by researchers of Tecnopoltica (CNSC) and Dimmons of the IN3, and Barcelona Ciutat Digital (Ajuntament de Barcelona). 

The manifesto is the result of a six-month working process called Digital Democracy and Common Data (DDDC), within the framework of the European DECODE project, that confirms the need for a common turn in the management of public data.

Apart from the manifesto, the researchers presented an application based on blockchain technology that allows signing digital citizen initiatives in a more secure way.
