Danish delegation visits ECAT in Seville

Representatives for ECAT and the Danish Centre for Social Media, Technology and Democracy

The European Centre for Algorithmic Transparency, represented by Head of Unit Alberto Pena and Lead Scientist Emilia Gómez, welcomed a delegation of Danish experts to discuss shared interests in advancing the field of algorithmic transparency and risk mitigation. 

The Danish Government has just launched a new Centre for Social Media, Tech and Democracy, with the primary aim of studying the impact of big tech on citizens, minors, and democratic processes. Their work will also involve assisting researchers in accessing the necessary data from tech companies, as specified in the Digital Services Act. 

It was a very fruitful meeting where we exchanged on mutual experiences and explored opportunities for collaboration.

The Danish delegation consisted of:

  • Mads Sohnemann Hein Bramsen, head of the Danish Centre for Social Media, Tech and Democracy.
  • Mette Fjord Kristensen, chief advisor at the Danish Centre for Social Media, Tech and Democracy.
  • Janus Andersen, chief advisor at the Danish Competition and Consumer Authority.
  • Johannes Jonathan Schuldt-Jensen, behavioural advisor at the Danish Competition and Consumer Authority.
  • Mathias Würtzenfeld, head of section at the Ministry of Culture.
