PRiME project for the BMBFFor a safe and secure metaverse

The joint project PRiME - Privacy in the metaverse is aiming for exercising one's own informational self-determination in the metaverse as a comprehensive fundamental right and has recently gone online with its own project website. Together with the partner universities of Erlangen-Nuremberg, Göttingen and Bonn, ConPolicy is investigating and researching the protection of privacy in the metaverse. The three-year project focuses on the controlled development of design practices and evaluation metrics that developers and operators of metaverse platforms should use to protect the privacy of their users. ConPolicy coordinates and supports the research team with a focus on behavioral science expertise, stakeholder engagement, information exchange, networking and public discourse. All dates, events and results will be successively published on the project website.

The project is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) until June 2026 and is part of the interdisciplinary privacy platform.
