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.

Interdisciplinary Conference

Friday, 13 October 2023
10:00 – 17:15 CEST
Universität Kassel


Zeitenwende beim Datenzugang? Struktur, Inhalte und Abstimmungsbedarf der aktuellen Regelungsvorschläge

Access to data is a sensitive issue, legally, morally, socially. Who should have access to data, who should control this access? How can
sensitive personal data be protected from misuse? How can the public interest in the use of data be guaranteed? How can data access rules be designed effectively and responsibly? Such questions are very much on the political agenda, as data access is currently being re-regulated in different contexts, at national and European level, in different areas such as research and health.

The conference organised by the project group Data Access Rules will therefore address fundamental normative problems against the background of current legislative projects and critically discuss them from an interdisciplinary perspective. The focus will not only be on the content and structure of concrete regulatory proposals, but also on how the various projects systematically fit together and what need for discussion arises for the future.
