DSI/DIZH Data Donation Lab

The DSI/DIZH Data Donation Lab was initiated to promote and facilitate research with data gathered through data donations – a relatively new methodological approach. Data donation refers to the active consent of an individual user to donate her or his personal digital trace data for research purposes. 

The Lab is founded by the DIZH Infrastructure and Lab Call and has two main goals: First, provide an infrastructure to collect digital trace data through data donations by study participants and second, provide a platform for the transdisciplinary exchange among researcher working with such data. 

The DSI/DIZH Data Donation Lab will be officially launched in a Kick-Off Meeting that will take place on Friday, 2ndJuly 2021 from 10.00 to 12.00. In this meeting you will get more detailed information about the aims and scope of the Lab, how this supports your research, and how you can engage in the lab. All researchers of the DIZH institutions (UZH, ZHAW, ZHdK, PHZH) who are interested in the Data Donation Lab or the topic in general are invited to join!
