Demystifying the Commercial Potential of Privacy-Enhancing Technologies
By 2025 the total amount of data created, captured and consumed is predicted to reach 175 zettabytes. However, much of that data’s value is being wasted due to distrust, as there is fear that the data would be exposed when used, computed on or shared with collaborators, possibly leading to trade secrets being leaked or data protection legislation fines.
CIS Digital Twin Days
Digital Twin technologies are gaining momentum in research and applications in health and industry on an international scale. EPFL and its partners are active in the development of related core technologies and their integrations, for instance via the CIS Research Pillars and DIGIPREDICT.
Fin & Tech Conference 2021 on Crypto-assets and Asset Tokenization
Decentralized Ledger Technology has the potential to reshape the traditional financial system. An example is decentralized finance, which allows people to combine open-source building blocks into sophisticated financial products utilizing DLT. Central banks, as another example, face growing competition from private actors offering their own digital alternative to physical cash. However, the current lack of clear legal and technological standards prevents market players and institutions from fully exploiting the potential DLT.
This conference features latest research and insights on crypto-assets and asset tokenization, and their impact on banking and financial market infrastructures. The event combines a broad spectrum of stakeholders, which combine legal and regulatory, technological, financial and economic as well as civil society perspectives. It addresses academics and practitioners alike, and shall foster the public dialogue and interaction across institutions.

The New Urban Infrastructures of the Circular Economy
To design the circular economy of smart cities, a new way of thinking about urban infrastructures is necessary. whether it is the installation of new waste to energy plants or developing cutting-edge digital systems to safeguard electricity and water, a new way of designing cities is needed.
Digital Trust 2025
This conference will take place on October 15th, 9:00-17:00, at the Maison de la Paix of the Graduate Institute, Geneva (IHEID). It will address a number of key questions: How does a lack of digital trust manifest itself today? Is this justified, based on current privacy and security issues, or is it exaggerated? Understated? What lessons can be learned from other sectors on how to build the trust that will be needed for our digital future. What is possible in the digital future, and what will be lost without digital trust? And finally, how should that digital trust be built?
The event is jointly organised by IHEID’s Centre for Trade and Economic Integration (CTEI) and EPFL’s Center for Digital Trust (C4DT).

IEEE Digital Privacy Workshop
Digital privacy has become a top social concern for the expanding digital world. Societies are trying to define and navigate the future of digital privacy and determine technological solutions, new policies, and frameworks needed to protect individuals while maintaining support for digital services. There are several broad areas where the landscape is undefined, where policies still need to be developed, and where IEEE expertise may greatly impact the future of “privacy” on-line. The Digital Privacy Project is exploring how IEEE can best add to this discussion – bringing the perspective of technologists – to help advance solutions to protect personal and private information.
Cyber Incident Tracer (CIT) #HEALTH: Tracking the Societal Impact of Cyberattacks on the Healthcare sector
We will discuss how to bridge the gap in the availability of information relating to cyberattacks on the healthcare sector and how evidence-led accountability is an important contribution to reduce cyberattacks on this critical sector. Panelists will focus on how and whether understanding the scale and scope of attacks can improve decision making and operational and diplomatic initiatives to protect the healthcare sector.
