Updates on the SRIW ecosystem and the latest self- and co-regulatory developments in the information economy - with a keen focus on data and consumer protection.

SRIW’s Recent Happenings

Dear Readers,

With the first month of 2024 behind us, we look back on a promising start to the new year as we publish our first newsletter edition! Following the successful launch of the Haustürkodex (eng.: Door-to-Door Sales Code of Conduct) last November, we welcomed several new members. These include Deutsche Giganetz, Infrafibre, Tele Columbus, Vodafone and EWE Tel. We look forward to fruitful cooperation and mutual exchanges! On a different note, a few days ago we celebrated European Data Protection Day with all of you. You can read below which thoughts this day inspired us to share.

Finally, we proudly start sharing with you the recordings of the event "AI Crisis Resilience Platforms: Opportunities and Challenges". The event was introduced by Dr. Klaus Glasmacher, representing the BMWK, followed by Kurt Junghanns, Research Associate at InfAI, who gave us an insight into the CoyPu project, and Frank Ingenrieth, Managing Director at SRIW,  who spoke about crisis resilience at the heart of AI platforms.

Next week, the keynotes of Marta Bonik, PhD Candidate at Infineon Technologies, and  Alexander Besner-Lettenbauer, Research Associate at TUM School of Social Sciences and Technology Department Governance, will follow. So stay tuned!

Wishing you a final happy new year and a good read,
