The Project in Short:

The project describes and transfers good practices on Corporate Digital Responsibility among European partners. In the project, information related to CDR is also distributed and surveys are carried out to companies in the regions regarding the level of expertise in the subject. 
CDR EUROPE encourages companies to consider social, economic, technological and environmental aspects in the production and use of digital technologies and processes, including: 

  • Their relationship with people and society: privacy protection, digital diversity/inclusion and socially ethical practices; 
  • Responsible management of economic impacts: replacing human jobs with digital technology, creating new digital jobs, sharing the economic benefits of digitalization with society. 
  • Responsible Technology Creation: Artificial Intelligence Algorithms, Harmless Digital Technologies, Cyber ​​Security and Responsible Data Validation. 
  • Digital technologies and the environment: responsible disposal and recycling practices, extending the life cycle of technology and limiting energy consumption.
