Welcome to Research Coordination Network

Supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF), FPF launched a Privacy and Data Responsibility Research Coordination Network (RCN). The RCN is a community of academic researchers and industry practitioners that foster industry-academic cooperation to address research priorities identified in the National Privacy Research Strategy (NPRS). The RCN creates new partnerships, incentivizes and distributes research, and promotes discussion of issues under the NPRS, supporting action toward technological innovation while protecting individual privacy.
