Award for privacy thesis


The CNIL announced the creation of an award which will be granted on an annual basis to a thesis related to the protection of personal data in the fields of law, history, human or political sciences, sociology, or economics, as well as technical fields. Applicants must have received a magna cum laude award for their thesis from a French University and they must submit their application to the CNIL before January 20. The 7000 Euro award will be used to ensure the publication of the thesis. Let's hope for the winner that it includes a Champagne party to celebrate the publication!
