IPACSO recently presented and participated at the Digital Enlightenment Forum 2015, in Kilkenny, Ireland, March 25-26th.
The Forum brought together in the region of 100 technologists, anthropologists, engineers, social scientists, entrepreneurs, designers, policy makers and civil society organisations, across Europe and beyond in order to better understand how humans engage with digital life and which options emerge.
On day 1 of the Forum, IPACSO joined with six other EU projects (USEMP, RRI-ACT, PRISMS, OpenYourCity, VOXZ-Pol and Civic Epistemologies) to share our respective insights, knowledge and developments in the areas of digital enlightenment, cyber security and privacy.
The event was truly an enlightening experience with a diverse and stimulating agenda, underpinned by multi and interdisciplinary knowledge sharing via the plenary panel discussions sessions, breakout sessions and keynote presentations from DG CNECT and the Irish Minister of State Dara Murphy - Europe's first Minister with special responsibility for Data Protection.
