Portable Data

Another, crucial aspect of TravelSpirit will be personal empowerment; by which we mean person centred design and the ability of an individual to accumulate their own travel history, preferences and needs and present those into any service or app that may arise instead of being dependent on any one solution.

We believe data portability and independence of the individual is the key to empowerment and people being able to take responsibility and accountability for life choices. Our collaborative partner, Mydex, are doing lots of work in local clusters across public, third and private sector organisations to address a range of social and practical challenges around personal empowerment, and through their championing, alongside University College London, of the ‘Best UX’ workstream, we are seeking to integrate best practice into this area, from the beginning.
