Brainport Smart District (BSD) wants to handle data in a responsible manner. And future residents must retain maximum control over their data. In short, these are the starting points for the Data Governance project. To support the organization with these important social issues, BSD has set up a Data Advisory Team and an Ethics Team. Marcel Thaens and Ben Kokkeler respectively have been appointed as chairman of these two advisory committees by the BSD board of the foundation.
BSD is a living lab in which social experiments are organized in a responsible manner with digital data, software, homes and devices. BSD is a leader in this in the Netherlands. These experiments that companies, governments and knowledge institutions are conducting together with citizens will raise questions about ethical and social impact.
