Today online user platforms and websites face significant security and privacy challenges that make them untrustworthy. With huge amounts of online data collected about users' activity and choices, later to only share them with numerous third parties, the user is left with little to no choice to maintain online privacy if they want to use online services. Online user privacy and data governance face numerous challenges in today's digital landscape.

TrustChain aims to set up an External Poll of Evaluators to support the review process of the proposals received from Open call #2 – User Privacy and Data Governance. The External Poll of Evaluators gathers a set of recognized independent experts highly knowledgeable on different NGI relevant topics and application domains at the intersection between the technical field, the Social sciences and Humanities as well as any others including economics, environment, art, design, which can contribute to NGI TrustChain relevant vision.

Call for Expression of Interest for experts is open from 03 August 2023 until 08 September 2023 (17:00 CEST)
