EDPS launches ‘Privacy by Design’ contest for health apps

The European Data Protection Supervisor (EDPS) has announced the launch of a contest to design mobile health (m-health) applications implementing “privacy by design and by default” principles.

The aim is to create best practices that may constitute a reference for privacy-friendly development of mobile apps and give users more control over their personal information. Participants are challenged to develop a useful and user-friendly m-health application at the forefront of the implementation of the data protection by design and by default principle, as required under the GDPR. The deadline for submissions is the end of June.
