School Researchers Launch National Privacy Survey


Do Irish people trust the government with their data? Help us find out. Take our survey here:

Dr Irina Tal is leading DCU School of Computing researchers in the Science Foundation Ireland funded project PRIVATT to find out. The teams are asking the public about their attitudes to privacy, data sharing & the COVID-19 app during the pandemic.
We are keen to get a repreresentative sample of the population so please circulate the survey as widely as possible.
PRIVATT is an interdisciplinary research project  comprising three elements: an online survey; a social media sentiment analysis, and a socio-legal analysis of technological privacy impacts. PRIVATT team is an interdisciplinary team with a wide range of expertise: data analytics, sentiment analysis, machine learning, communications, security, privacy, law. The partners are DCU (lead), Trinity College Dublin, National College of Ireland and Middlex University London. PRIVATT is hosted by the LERO and ADAPT Research Centres.
This project is supported by Science Foundation Ireland through COVID Rapid Response programme grant number 20/COV/0229 and through the grant 13/RC/2094 co-funded under the European Regional Development Fund through the Southern and Eastern Regional Operational Programme to Lero – the Irish Software Research Centre ( and the ADAPT Centre for Digital Content Technology ( [grant number 13/RC/2106].
