Open Call: Je Data de Baas 2

In 2019 SIDN fonds issued the call "Je data de baas". This year they are following up with a call about the value of data, raising awareness about the role of the data supplier and giving more attention to strengthening the position of the internet user.

We produce and use data every day, actively and passively. Therefore we play a crucial role in the data society, but in this role we are not an equal player. In fact, in exchange for ‘free’ services, we are often passive data suppliers instead of being in charge of our own data.

As data becomes more and more important as a raw material for the digital society, the question of the impact of this development on internet users is increasingly relevant.

The call ‘Je data de baas 2‘ is now open. Deadline is Tuesday 28th April, 13:00.

The call will focus on:

  • Insight & awareness
  • Data minimization
  • Alternative tools

The call is open to:

  • Small experiments (contributions of up to €10,000 for a proof of concept, demo, pilot or experimental design).
  • Larger and already tried and tested projects (contributions up to a maximum of €75,000 for the further development of an existing proof of concept, promising concepts or results of (scientific) research into useful applications).
