“Citizen generated data for policy, innovation and democratic participation” special track at Data for Policy 2022

27/05/2022

EUH4D project and King’s College London, together with the collaboration of the MediaFutures project will be hosting a special track at the Data for Policy 2022 conference. The 2022 Conference is held both virtual and in three physical locations (Hong Kong, Seattle, Brussels) and focuses on innovation ecosystems.

The track focuses on citizen-generated data for policy, innovation and democratic participation. More in particular, it addresses the ways through which researchers can highlight citizens’ uses of data innovations, with the hope of placing citizens at the centre of future policy-making initiatives. The track will discuss challenges and opportunities in developing data platforms, systems and policies for civic participation, including participation in global development processes, democratic participation and inclusion of marginalised communities. It will explore and showcase the full potential of citizen generate data in its many forms, for both policy and innovation; the specific challenges related to the generation, processing and use of citizen-generated data for policy and innovation; connections between policymakers, innovators, and citizens to enable the use of such data; and case studies of both successful and unsuccessful connections.

The call for papers to the special track is open until June 1st, 2022. Submit yours!
