13 Aug 2019
Václav Janeček (2017, DPhil Law) has won the Jacques Derrida CEFRES Platform Award for his research on data ownership.
The award is given to the best articles in social sciences and humanities in an international peer-reviewed journal.
St Edmund Hall student, Václav, has been recognised for his article ‘Ownership of personal data in the Internet of things’.
The significance of issues concerning a data economy and online privacy reaches far beyond black-letter law… I think this award marks the importance of interdisciplinary and innovative research methods. In this regard, I was very lucky to find an exceptionally motivating environment for this project at the Digital Ethics Lab and am now even more committed to keep working on these questions in the future. – Václav Janeček
On the 26 June 2019, the award ceremony took place at the National Museum in Prague in the presence of the Ambassador Roland Galharague and one Nobel Prize laureate: Jean-Marie Lehn. The prizes were supported by Mgr. Karel Janeček, PhD., MBA.
