Workshop on the economic benefits of Privacy Enhancing Technologies (PETs)
The Workshop presented the interim report from the study on the economic benefits of PETs, which was carried out by the London School of Economics.
It also gave the opportunity to a broad spectrum of stakeholders to share their experiences in the field of PETs.
