xLab of CWRU, the City of Elyria, and Dataswift, UK have formed a strategic partnership aiming at bringing in digital transformation to the City of Elyria by combining the power of privacy-preserving micro-server technology developed by Dataswift with the digital innovation framework developed by xLab. Students will be working with CWRU faculty and staff, the Mayor of Elyria and his staff, and the CEO of Dataswift and her staff through mentorship, internship, and micro-credential activities related to civic digital start-ups. Students will engage with diverse stakeholders to promote personal data ownership, to reduce digital literacy, to organize civic hackathon around personal data, and to work on civic start-up projects with government agencies, foundations, venture investors, start-ups, and large corporates.
