The VPIP Chair takes a multidisciplinary approach to the collection, use and sharing of personal information.
Its scope includes information concerning individuals (privacy, professional activities, digital identities, contributions to social networks, etc.) including information collected by communicating objects (smartphones, home automation, smart meters, connected televisions or NFC-type smart toys, etc.).
The members of the Chair have published nearly 80 articles, dossiers and reports in scientific journals, collective books or in the general press. This plurality of media reflects the diversity of the audiences concerned: experts and researchers, public authorities, business leaders, students and citizens. The richness of the topics covered demonstrates the complexity of the subjects relating to personal information.
It is supported by the Imprimerie Nationale group, BNP Parisbas, Orange, Sopra Steria, Qwant, Dassault Systèmes, CNIL, the Interministerial Directorate for Digital Technology and the State Information and Communication System (DINSIC), which reports to the Prime Minister and the Fondation Telecom.
