Personal Data in Research

Personal Data in Research

How to handle personal data before, during and after your research?  This question is central to this workshop. In 120 minutes the RDM Support Team will first introduce you to the basics of the GDPR and the various key concepts which are important when you are doing research that involves identifiable personal data.

Next the workshop will guide you along the research cycle, providing pragmatic ways in which you can incorporate good privacy practices during the phases of research planning, data collection, data analysis, publishing and archiving of your research data.

Throughout the workshop extra attention will be paid to the question when you should ask for assistance, and which support is most suitable (RDM support, privacy officers,  ethics committees or ICT).
