In the current digital society, data are acquired, recorded and processed by new technologies in ever more areas of life. These types of data increasingly affect decision-making e.g. in economy, administration, and politics. In the cross-university project Information Governance Technologies, researchers from informatics, legal studies and ethics look into human-centered technical possibilities for a responsible handling of data. Aiming to establish a long-term thematic research network (DFG-Forschergruppe), the project financed by the Landesforschungsförderung Hamburg develops an interdisciplinary theoretical framework for Information Governance Technologies. The project also consists of applied-oriented modules, where new methods, patterns and mechanisms will be developed and tested that are able to counteract the loss of autonomy and impairment of democratic self-determination by the use of software.
