Trilateral Research is a UK and IE-based enterprise, founded in 2004. Our rigorous research is at the foundation of our work.
We provide regulatory and policy advice; develop new data-driven technologies and contribute to the latest standards in safeguarding privacy, ethics and human rights within the public and private sector.
Our teams collaborate across the technology-social disciplinary divide, being able to assess the impact of emerging technologies to avoid adverse and unwanted consequences while delivering sustainable innovation.
We focus our efforts on areas where the application of our research can make a difference in enhancing societal wellbeing.
Trilateral is committed to the UN Global Compact corporate responsibility initiative and its principles in the areas of human rights, labour, the environment and anti-corruption.
The work of WP 4 on legal and ethical implications and its integration at a stage whereby it can inform the planning of the R&D approach is worthy of note for the potential impact it could have on work plans for future EU funded projects. It offers an exemplar and should be shared across other projects in the Work Programme and beyond. It is suggested that more dissemination through both scientific and non-scientific channels is targeted during the project lifetime.
Thanks to Trilateral’s Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA+) workshop, technical project partners were able take a measured view on how data collection, workflows, analysis and security would be managed within the project. The workshop improved our thinking on a very important aspect of the project, enabling the technical teams to think more carefully about the wider system of interest for user and technical requirements.
“Julia and Toby were engaging, knowledgeable and relevant to our operational areas. Their breadth of expertise delivered an excellent afternoon of Professional Military Education for members of 40 Commando which carried on in conversation and debate well into the evening”
The tasks of Trilateral Research included the management of the Stakeholder Communities, the creation of the Dissemination and Communication Plan and the Data Management Plan, a large set of promotional materials and numerous promotional activities of the project. They also designed and edited the Conference Brief for the project’s final conference. Trilateral Research also participated in ethics monitoring throughout the project. As the coordinator of the project, I am happy to recommend Trilateral Research to similar tasks in research projects. All tasks allocated to them were managed with skill, prudency and high quality.
The company was responsive to the ICRC’s needs and always wished to ensure client expectations were met. I am pleased to commend Trilateral to any organisation wishing to have high quality research services, insightful analysis, and well-written reports.
In 2013 Trilateral Research prepared a report on privacy impact assessment and risk management for the Information Commissioner’s Office…The report was detailed and provided authoritative research input for the ICO’s revised PIA Code of Practice…We were pleased with the quality and value for money the report provided.
Trilateral completed both projects to our full satisfactory and delivered high quality products that advanced our understanding on the opportunities of deploying technology based approaches for humanitarian work.
