Who We Are
About the digital legal lab
The Digital Legal Lab is a joint research network between Tilburg University, the University of Amsterdam, Radboud University Nijmegen and Maastricht University.
We bring together legal scholars, data scientists and academics from the humanities and social sciences to collaboratively explore the intersection of law, technology & society. Our joint research initiative – Digital Legal Studies – is funded through the Law Sector Plan of the Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture and Science (OCW).
issues we focus on
What is the impact of AI, data, data science, automation and digitalisation on the legal system?
What regulatory and legal challenges must be addressed to protect digital information, privacy and trust?
How can the shift from human to automated decision-making be mapped, understood and perhaps even shaped?
What challenges emerge when AI becomes
embedded in healthcare, and how can fundamental values be safeguarded by the use of "code"?
A workshop on EU health data governance and
the proposed European Health Data Space
This workshop on the (proposed) European Health Data Space (EHDS) will explore the contours of EU health data governance and, in particular, examine the Commission’s plans for the EHDS and the policy options for health data access and sharing therein.
This event intends to bring together policy-makers and expert academics to discuss EU’s plans regarding the governance of health data sharing and the EHDS; sharing health data for healthcare, health research and innovation, and health policy, including types and sources of health data, the stakeholders involved, the expected benefits and the ethical and legal concerns etc.; and a broader discussion on creating a single market for digital health via the EHDS.
Regulating digital markets: enforcement and remedies
Digital Legal Lab researchers Inge Graef and Alex Ruiz Feases are organizing a workshop on how to create effective enforcement and effective remedies for digital markets. Keynote speakers are professor Anne-Lise Sibony (Université catholique de Louvain) and professor Ryan Calo (University of Washington School of Law).
The workshop aims to bring together insights from different fields and areas to explore how regulators can address the risks attached to the incorporation of new technologies in our daily lives.
