Big Policy Canvas Research Roadmap

[...] * But in the present context of declining trust in public institutions and recent awareness of the risk of big data for individual freedoms, any intervention towards greater usage of personal data should be treated with enormous care and appropriate safeguards should be developed.

GDPR has clearly an important role in that regard

Nontheless of the big role of the GDPR, the trust factor is not understood well so far. While there are a number of studies on trust and there exist several trust models explaining trust relations and enabling empirical research on the level of trust, these researches are not yet including the study of trust in big data applications and the impact this may have on human behaviour

Indeed, trust in big data applications is not very well understood yet

Also, as Emvol Trompev noted somewhere above, GDPR might in some cases turn to an obstacle instead of a safegueard.

Indeed, GDPR turns to be an obstacle but this might be the result of a) the insufficient explanation by researchers of what GDPR is about and b) the practice to use personal data without the consent of the research participants
