TRUEdig investigates how businesses that develop privacy-enhancing services also can increase users’ security and sense of empowerment.
“TRUEdig will be conducted in cooperation with Computer Science at Karlstad University, so two successful environments with extensive experience of involving external partners are working together,” says Per Kristensson, director of the Service Research Center (CTF) at Karlstad University.
Project partners include: Google, Genelle, Ericsson, InTechrity, Ica-gruppen, Elvenite and Deversify.
“It is critical to ensure that future innovation does not come at the expense of our privacy and productivity. Three of four Swedes are worried about their online privacy. This project enables us to conduct an in-depth investigation of basing innovation on the individual’s interests, while also creating value for all partners.”
The research project is funded by the Knowledge Foundation, participating companies and Karlstad University.
