Our members Inria and Fraunhofer (Fraunhofer AISEC, Fraunhofer HHI, Fraunhofer IIS) are participating in the Pan-European Privacy-Preserving Proximity Tracing (PEPP-PT) initiative, launched by European scientists to create mobile apps useful in tracking the spread of COVID-19. PEPP-PT will focus on the development of applications that can trace contact and potential COVID-19 spreads across populations, not just now, but also potentially in the future. PEPP-PT will provide standards, technology, and services to countries and developers. PEPP-PT says they embrace a fully privacy-preserving approach and build on well-tested, fully implemented proximity measurement and scalable backend service. Researchers and institutions are invited to join. PEPP-PT is establishing a partner management team to help partners to get going quickly.

The inventor of the web urged widespread backing of the plan, the Contract for the Web, which sets out concrete actions governments, companies and individual citizens can — and must — take to ensure a web that is safe, empowering and for everyone. The failure of global actors to defend the free and open web, he warned, risks a “digital dystopia” of entrenched inequality and abuse of rights.
