The association of prefiguration Occitanie Data was formed around a core of 17 founders from the industrial world as well as academia, companies and public institutions. All of them have become aware of the pact of trust that Occitanie Data proposes to build and guarantee both on the level of data sovereignty and on the level of the ethics of its use, for a sharing and a cross treatment of the different sources that respects the interests of each one, and allows a fair distribution of the created value.
All along the year 2020, Occitanie Data’s experts have elaborated a first version of the Ethical Charter of Data Uses. However, to be continuously adapted to technological, social et legal changes, we consider it is fundamental that this charter be a dynamic instrument. In this sense, we have organized a first cycle of co-construction workshops with external experts, and we plan to organize a second one, with citizens, in order to collect their feedbacks on the charter and thus, diffuse it and improve it.
