Tijmen Wisman worked in the past for RFID Platform the Netherlands. He started his PhD on privacy in EU’s Internet of Things-policy in 2010. His research focusses on mandatory IoT-systems in the home and the car, smart meters and eCall, and how the European Commission interprets and enforces the right to privacy in its policy and legislative processes which introduce these mandatory systems. Currently he is finishing this research.
Tijmen teaches and coordinates Internet Governance, Privacy & Data Protection and International Business and Internet Law. He is also co-ordinator of dissertations for the master Internet, Intellectual Property and ICT
Tijmen participates in the faculty research programme Boundaries of Law and conducts research in the programme Transnational Legal Studies.
The EU has set a digital agenda for a phenomenon they refer to as the ‘Internet of Things’ (IoT). This is not a clear-cut concept. It means that the internet will advance from a network of computers towards a network of things. Smartphones are a good example, but also smart washing machines and electricity meters prove that computing power is extending the traditional limits of the pc. The aim of the research is to assess the foreseeable impact of EU policy with regard to the IoT on the private sphere of the home. In addition this impact will be tested against the European laws concerning privacy.
