Access all areas? Research data access under the DSA

The Network of Centers (NoC) invites all members to the next NoC Learning Call. Konrad Kollnig and Aurelia Tamò-Larrieux will discuss the practical hurdles for researchers when applying for data access to platform activities. The event will take place exclusively online and in English.


Access all areas?
Research data access under the DSA

NoC Learning Call
Tuesday, 23 April 2024 | 3.00 pm (CET)
Online (Zoom)


In this third session on the DSA in the NoC 2024 learning call series, we will look at how the regulation aims to level the playing field by providing researchers with data access requests. Konrad Kollnig and Aurelia Tamò-Larrieux will discuss how these data access requests can help investigate platform activities and the practical hurdles that must be overcome and provide insights into concrete data access requests launched within the course of 2024.


Dr. Konrad Kollnig is an assistant professor in the Law & Tech Lab at Maastricht University and holds a PhD in computer science from the University of Oxford. In his work, Dr. Kollnig strives to create a more equitable digital economy and to make technology laws, like the GDPR and AI Act, work in practice. He is motivated by the fact that it is highly challenging to scale and enforce technology laws across millions of apps and websites. His PhD thesis on the topic (titled ‘Regulatory Technologies for the Study of Data and Platform Power in the App Economy’) recently won the 2024 Stefano Rodotà Award from the Council of Europe, which annually selects one PhD thesis as having made significant contributions to data protection.

Dr. Aurelia Tamò-Larrieux is an associate professor at the University of Lausanne (UNIL), Faculty of Law, focusing on the domain of digital law. She has a background in law and economics and specializes in research at the intersection of law and digital technologies with a particular focus on privacy, data protection, design approaches, transparency of automated decision-making, automatically processable regulation, and trust in automation. Aurelia’s scientific publications on those subjects are open access. Her PhD research  “Designing for Privacy and Its Legal Framework” was published by Springer and won the Issekutz and SIAF awards. Prior to her joining UNIL, Aurelia worked as an assistant professor for Privacy, Security, and Computational Law at Maastricht University and was an active member of the Law and Tech Lab in the Netherlands. 


Vincent Hofmann is a PhD candidate working for the HIIG as well as the Leibniz institute for media research | Hans-Bredow institute in Hamburg. He studied law with a focus on international and European law. His research focuses on ethical consideration around the application of AI with a focus on meaningful human intervention. His PhD deals with the question on how the interpretation of open constitutional norms can be made more consistently with the use of non-legal knowledge. 

About the NoC Learning Call series

The NoC Learning Call series has been relaunched in 2024 to bring members of the network of centers together once a month to learn something new about the work within the network. We will hear new insights and discuss a wide range of topics with leading experts in the field. Due to the truly global nature of the NoC, we focus on the different continental and national perspectives on particular topics and try to think a little outside the box. Join us every last Tuesday of the month at 1pm CET for lively discussions and new insights on current topics. Upcoming events will focus on issues around DSA and its global implications, as well as the technological and societal change we can expect from quantum computing.


This event will be conducted in context of the project DSA Research Network.

Researcher: AI & Society Lab


This high-profile lecture series thrives to develop a European perspective on the processes of transformation that our societies are currently undergoing.


Once a month we publicly discuss the impact of digitalisation on the society. Therefore we invite special guests and engage in a dialogue with the audience.


Be the first to learn about our new events and exciting research results.
