Towards a Design Thematic Group (DTG)



Alessandro Carelli


Room 108: NTT Data room by NTT Data


11:45 - 13:00 Opening Day






Designing for, through and with personal data stands at the core of the MyData mission of rebuilding trust as a premise for a flourishing human-centered data economy. Design is therefore crucial for the emerging human-centric personal data landscape to succeed.

For these reasons the MyData conference has been hosting contributions on design since its early editions and time is ripe for building a permanent presence of design also within the MyData community. The aim of this meeting is to bring together likeminded people who are interested in the design aspects of human-centric personal data and eager to boost the activity by building a Design Thematic Group (DTG).

As a first step towards such achievement the following topics will be addressed during the meeting:

  • What does design mean for MyData?
  • What would be the scope of the DTG?
  • What are the potential benefits for the whole MyData community and what opportunities are available to collaborate with other local hubs and thematic groups?
  • What are the most relevant topics to be addressed by the DTG?
  • What will be our next steps and actions?
