Manon Molins is project manager at the Next-Generation Internet Foundation (Fing) for the project “MesInfos”.
Fing is a nonprofit organization which creates, detects and shares novel and actionable ideas to anticipate digital transformations.
For 5 years now, The “MesInfos” team has been exploring the Self Data scenario: the collection, use and sharing of personal data by and for individuals, under their complete control and designed to fulfill their own needs and aspirations. To improve one’s self-knowledge, evaluate past decisions, make better and more informed choices in the present, share information and collaborate with others, contribute to common endeavours.
The goal of the MesInfos project – thanks to white papers, workshops, events but also an experiment in 2013 and a pilot in 2016 – is to engage organizations in giving back to their customers the data they have on them, to restore trust and the balance of powers.
