CPDP is a non profit platform originally founded in 2007 by research groups from the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, the Université de Namur and Tilburg University. The platform was joined in the following years by the Institut National de Recherche en Informatique et en Automatique and the Fraunhofer Institut für System und Innovationsforschung. Other outstanding institutions, such as Technische Universität Berlin, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, Max Planck Institute for Foreign and International Criminal Law, the University of Leiden, the University of Passau and the University of Amsterdam recently joined the Platform in 2013. For the 2014 edition CPDP welcomes the KU Leuven and the University of Turin as new European partners, Korea University as first Asian partner and CPDP is also very proud to welcome a number of prestigious American partners, including Capital University, University of California, Berkeley, University of Maine and Fordham University.

The annual CPDP conference offers the cutting edge in legal, regulatory, academic and technological development in privacy and data protection. It gathers key stakeholders from government, academia, industry and civil society in an atmosphere of mutual respect to exchange ideas and discuss emerging issues in information technology, privacy and data protection. This unique multidisciplinary formula has served to make CPDP one of the leading data protection and privacy conferences in Europe and around the world.

Financial Accountability

CPDP is a non-profit platform which uses all incoming money to make conference work and to guarantee quality, diversity and interdisciplinarity. In order to achieve these aims, participation fees for the conference are kept deliberately low.

Our aim is to make this conference break even, or at least to limit losses as much as possible. However, we often end with a small loss. The cost of personnel organizing and programming the conference is carried by the participating universities and a considerable amount of money is invested in aspects of the conference such as art shows, phd students, public debates, book lauches etc.
