EMPOWER: Data Governance Driving International Standards and Practices
What is EMPOWER?
EMPOWER is a multi-million-euro research programme dedicated to the multidisciplinary field of data governance. It is funded by industry partners and Science Foundation Ireland (SFI), the Irish national agency for scientific research, which brings together leading experts from academia and private enterprises to address the current challenges in data governance.
Effective and efficient data governance is the core pillar of EMPOWER’s vision for a thriving global data ecosystem. The research will advance an alignment between business goals and societal needs to develop methodologies and tools addressing challenges around key areas such as reliability/reproducibility, privacy, provenance, consent, explainability, inclusiveness and avoidance of unfair bias.
We believe data platforms and appropriate data governance models will be crucial to enabling all users to harness the potential of the data within the global data ecosystem.
