ENCRYPT Project start

ENCRYPT, a new research project, entitled “A scalable and practical privacy-preserving framework”, officially started today.

The project is funded in the framework of Horizon Europe programme, under research Topic HORIZON-CL3-2021-CS-01-04.

Its main objective is to address challenges related to existing Privacy Preserving technologies, thus providing researchers and service providers working with personal and other sensitive data, with a scalable, practical, adaptable privacy-preserving framework facilitating the GDPR-compliant processing of such data stored in federated cross-border data spaces. Within this framework, a recommendation engine for citizens and end-users will be developed, providing them with personalised suggestions on privacy preserving technologies depending on the sensitivity of data and the accepted trade-off between the degree of security and the overall system performance.

14 partners from 8 countries have formed an interdisciplinary consortium, covering the value chain for privacy-preserving computation technologies, and they will work together for the next 36 months to realise ENCRYPT offer.
