Call for case studies 

The BPF is looking for case studies and examples of how stakeholders address the challenges that emerge when collecting and using users' data. 

  • The BPF is looking for examples of applications (deployed or under development) that use users’ data. The BPF wants to understand what the pursued benefit is for the user(s) whose data is being used, and what measures are being taken to avoid that the collected data may be used to harm the user.  In other words, what measures are being taken to address challenges identified on the Data and New Technologies Issues Card .
  • The BPF is looking for examples of frameworks, guidelines and policies that address challenges identified on the Data and New Technologies Issues Card and aim to ensure that users can benefit and are not harmed. 

The BPF is interested in case studies related as well as unrelated to COVID-19.
