ELIXIR Webinar: Requirements in data protection law and the upcoming General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) implementation

Wed 7 February 2018, 14:00

Regina Becker (ELIXIR Luxembourg) will give an introduction into the upcoming General Data Protection Legislation (GDPR) that will come into force on 25 May 2018. The new regulation has considerable consequences for managing and storing personal data, imposing more responsibility on the data controllers and data processors.

During the webinar, relevant parts of the legislation for research and data sharing will be highlighted. Practical consequences for research institutions and in particular ELIXIR Nodes will be explained, and measures outlined that should be implemented for compliance. In addition, challenges and open questions will be addressed and suggestions made on how to jointly tackle these challenges in ELIXIR.

This webinar is of interest for data stewards, Technical Coordinators, and everyone interested in the requirements for processing data for research under the GDPR.
