Aligned to the MK:Smart project, the Open University (KMi/MCT) and Milton Keynes Council are engaged in a 3 month feasibility study with govt and other agencies on Personal Information. We want to make sure that the voice of MK citizens is heard. Your Personal Information includes age, gender, ethnicity, address, location, financial, opinion and health information amongst others
 
A new market is emerging for Personal Information Management Services (PIMS) – services that help individuals gather, manage and use information (including personal information) to make better decisions and manage their lives better. This market is forecast to be larger than the UK automotive industry. To be part of the activity that will shape this market, help the OU be at the forefront of this thinking.
