iRights.Lab collaborates on the BMVI mFUND conference
At the third mFUND conference in Berlin, organized by the Bundesministerium für Verkehr und digitale Infrastruktur (BMVI; Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure), iRights.Lab led participants through the program and organized two workshops on data quality and the ethical questions that arise in connection with new mobility concepts.
The third BMVI mFUND conference took place at the Allianz Forum in Berlin from 26 to 27 September, in front of more than 400 participants. The motto of this year’s two-day event was “Data impulses for smart mobility” and Wiebke Glässer from iRights.Lab moderated the program.
Federal Minister Andreas Scheuer, member of the German Bundestag, opened the conference and discussed, among other things, his ministry’s work in connection with the mFUND, for which the iRights.Lab is responsible for conducting accompanying research.
With the mFUND (Modernitätsfonds; Modernity fund) research initiative, the BMVI supports research and development projects related to data-based applications for Mobility 4.0. In addition to financial support, mFUND organizes a range of events in order to support networking between the relevant actors in the field.
In addition to moderating the event, iRights.Lab organized two workshops. The first dealt with the question of data quality in practice and which internal organizational processes could best contribute to quality assurance. The participants evaluated a checklist prepared by iRights.Lab, which focused on topics such as the accessibility, currentness, and comprehensibility of data. The second workshop dealt with the ethical and social dimensions of the mobility sector. In addition to a tool for assessing the social relevance of projects, we presented our Algo.Rules – formal rules of design that guide the assessment of algorithmic systems.
