Press Release - New research project 'Participatory Surveillance'

Research project at the University of Göttingen investigates acceptance and effective use of coronavirus tracing apps

How can apps like the Corona-Warn app help combat the pandemic? How can people use their data to help manage crises in our society without putting their data at risk of misuse? What role can technological configurations or government regulations play in the success of such apps? A research team at the University of Göttingen is addressing these questions. The Volkswagen Foundation has funded the "Participatory Surveillance" project for one and a half years with around 100,000 euros.

Further information can be found in the latest press release of the University and on the Project Homepage.
