Wednesday, September 25, 2019 12:30to14:00
Projet Young, 204 Rue Young, Montréal, QC, H3C 2G1, CA

Data governance for data sharing – particularly where some or all of the data are sourced from human activity – raises issues of ownership, privacy, ethics and even sovereignty. This presentation organized by CIRM and the Centre for Intellectual Property Policy examines these issues with a particular focus on the Urban Data Trust proposed in Sidewalk Labs’ Master Innovation Development Plan for Toronto’s Quayside Development. The conference will be held in French and English, and a light snack will be offered! To attend, please RSVP by following this link.
