Professor Thomas Widjaja is a Principal Investigator in the Cyber<>Institutions research area. Here is his contribution:

‘In our research, we examine how consumers’ permission to use their data is affected when companies use these data not only for internal purposes but transfer them on to other companies in their networks. What changes when networks of companies use customer data to put new products and services on the market? This question is interesting from both the supplier and consumer side.

Why he participates in Cyber<>Spaces:

‘Overall, such an interdisciplinary team gives rise to many interesting and relevant research questions. I think it’s going to be a whole lot of fun!’
