Society is about to see a major shift in the accountability of organisations that make use of individuals’ personal data. Currently people give implied consent for the use of personal data on many occasions, such as when they accept the terms and conditions associated with downloading a new app. Less than 1% of people understand what personal data might be collected and how it might be used.
VICINITY Test Labs will support the activities of the prototyping and testing of the early VICINITY infrastructure available, currently consisting of: AAU Microgrid IoT Laboratory in Denmark, CERTH Test Laboratory in Greece, ATOS IoE Laboratory in Spain.
The H2020 project VICINITY aims at providing “Interoperability as a service” through VICINITY Cloud services to setup semantic interoperability including device discovery and peer-to-peer network of VICINITY Nodes to exchange context-aware user data in secure and privacy preserving manner.
