Pan-European Privacy-Preserving Proximity Tracing
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.
