The PriVELT Project (2018 - 2021) involves a group of researchers working in five academic disciplines (Computer Science, Tourism and Hospitality Management, Psychology, Business, Law) at four UK universities (University of Kent, University of Surrey, University of Warwick, Durham University). The project is led by Prof Shujun Li of Kent Interdisciplinary Research Centre in Cyber Security (KirCCS), the University of Kent. It has an overall budget of £1.4m, with 80% (£1.12m) funding from Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC). PriVELT will address the two-sided challenges associated with offering a seamless and highly personalised end-to-end travel experience while balancing the privacy and security needs of leisure travellers. PriVELT aims to develop an innovative user-centric and privacy-aware digital platform that will empower leisure travellers to better manage the sharing of their personal data with travel service providers and other entities and foster new business opportunities for the travel and tourism industry through encouraging better (more transparent and effective) usage of travellers' data. Surrey's researchers: Iis Tussyadiah (PI), Prof Annabelle Gawer (CI), and Dr Athina Ioannou (RF).
