Event description
Contact Tracing Apps are seen as part of the UK's route out of lockdown. Our panel will explore the pros and cons of these apps.

About this Event

Contract tracing, along with Contact Tracing Apps have been identified as a key component of the potential route out of the current UK lockdown.

Whilst the government has moved forward developing its own NHS App, some parties have advocated for a more decentralised solution upon which third parties could build applications (such as the system being developed jointly by Apple and Google, or the European open-source DP3T project).

Our online panel will explore the pros and cons of the current solutions being mooted, consider the privacy concerns relating to such applications, and what the implications could be for society in both the short and medium term. There will be the opportunity for questions from the audience too.

Chair: Louise Glover - School of Law, University of Sheffield
