October 23: Money talks? The impact of corporate funding on academic research in information law and policy
The Institute for Information Law, University of Amsterdam, as part of the European Hub of the Global Network of Centers for Internet and Society (NoC), is organizing a conference to understand the scope, structure, amount, topics and beneficiaries of corporate funding in research, discuss internal safeguards of research independence and integrity, explore interfaces and firewalls between academia and industry and investigate the impact of corporate funding. The do’s and dont’s of private funding and research collaborations with private partners is a topic that is particular relevant in AI research, where private parties play a pivotal role as owners of technology, data and influence.
A call for papers, workshops, roundtables and action on the subject is open until July 7. More information here.
