The CDT project USEMP was awarded the ICT 2015 "Young Minds Award" for Grand Prix Best Exhibitor.
USEMP stands for "User empowerment for Enhanced Online Mangement" and is a project funded by EU FP7 with the mission to raise citizens´ awareness of their digital footprint in social media and give the users´the control of their personal data. The USEMP initiative takes up the challenge of developing tools to empower users with regard to their volunteered (posted), their observed (behavioural) data and the inferred data, which basically drive most of the business models of OSNs. Of key importance for the project is to empower users by enhancing the understanding and control over the data they distribute or interact with.
The three year project has one year left to go and at the moment is in the process of thinking about how to move forward regarding commercialization and how to present the project forward.
