Data Access Rules

The highly controversial question of the allocation of data (rights) has consequences for access options and thus influences our possibilities to use data most effectively and in a way that is compatible with the common good. Therefore, the project group scrutinises traditional allocation and access guidelines. On the one hand, it examines specific possibilities as to how data access can be designed in such a way that it reflects multi-actor responsibility and neither overburdens nor overestimates individual data providers. On the other hand, against the backdrop of systematic-philosophical conceptions of “rights”, it is to be asked to what extent data accesses form a meaningful field of application in order to modify traditional ideas of the subject and ideas of rights based on them.

Zugänge zu den Zugängen: Perspektiven und Gestaltungsoptionen

Thursday, 4 May 2023
10:00 – 16:00 CEST
JLU Gießen


Interdisciplinary Workshop

The workshop “Zugänge zu den Zugängen: Perspektiven und Gestaltungsoptionen” is dedicated to the question of how rules are to be designed in order to use data as effectively as possible and in a way that is compatible with the common good. For example, does the conventional, subjective legal definition of access modalities still meet current challenges or does it need to be reformulated? How should traditional allocation and access guidelines be revised, especially with regard to health and research data?

Against this background, the workshop will bring together experts from different disciplines to structure the debate along the guiding concepts of data situativity, data subjectivity, data sovereignty and data solidarity and to identify concrete design options.
