The CNIL and INRIA launch a European award to encourage scientific research on the protection of privacy


For the first time in 2016, the CNIL and Inria are organising a European award for the best scientific paper published in 2014 and 2015 on the subject of privacy and the protection of personal data.

This award is intended to encourage research work in the field of digital sciences.

It is also an opportunity to raise awareness among the scientific community on data protection issues and the need to develop research projects in this area.

Examples of possible article topics include:

  • Privacy by Design;
  • Privacy Enhancing Technologies (PETs);
  • Anonymisation;
  • Privacy Risk Analysis;
  • Control on personal data;
  • Accountability;
  • Transparency;

They must be the result of work carried out, at least in part, in a European research centre.

Prize winners will be invited to attend the Computers, Privacy and Data Protection Conference in January 2017, where they will be presented with their trophy. Award-winning articles will be promoted by the CNIL and Inria.

The competition is open for application until midnight 1 July 2016, inclusive.
