About the Digital Autonomy Hub


The Digital Autonomy Hub is a competence center that coordinates an interdisciplinary network of 43 institutes and organizations. The hub will make visible the partners' research and ideas they are developing to strengthen the individual digital sovereignty. The aim of this knowledge transfer is to enable all people to handle their data in a reflective and self-determined way. The competence center prepares current research results for civil society, politics, science and business and advises the various players on ethical, legal and social aspects of data use.

The Digital Autonomy Hub is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research and supported by the German Informatics Society (GI) and AlgorithmWatch.
