Barcelona, Spain — The Data Transparency Lab (DTL) has launched its second annual Call for Proposals, part of the DTL Grants Program. In order to support research to foster data transparency, DTL will award research grants to academic institutions worldwide. Such grants come in the form of a lump sum of up to 50K euro that will be awarded to successful applicants for pursuing DTL related research.
Our 2016 grant awardees will be announced early June 2016, and will present their ongoing work at the DTL2016 Conference, which will take place on Nov. 17-19th at Columbia University (New York City).
The Data Transparency Lab (DTL) – a community of universities, businesses and institutions founded by Mozilla, Telefónica, MIT Connection Science and AT&T – is a collaborative effort to support research in tools, data, and methodologies for shedding light on the use of personal data by online services, and to empower users to be in control of their personal data online.
