International Seminar Complying with the GDPR in Institutions of Higher Education & Research

Data Protection in Scientific Research - New Data Protection Impact Assessment - Case Studies


Challenges and Implications in the GDPR Implementation Process

The aim of the GDPR is to harmonise data protection of individuals throughout the EU. The GDPR will increase monetary sanctions and risks of reputational damage in cases of non-compliance significantly. These consequences of non-compliance are putting pressure on universities and research institutes. The balancing of the conflicting rights to academic freedom and to informational self-determination is a significant task that universities need to manage.

Who is this seminar for?
  • What is the scope of legal application of the GDPR within Europe and when exactly do third party states need to abide by the rules and principles of the GDPR?
  • What implication does data protection have in the context of scientific research?
  • How to safeguard privacy effectively by addressing responsibilities and demonstrating compliancy to the GDPR in academic research
  • How should you implement the GDPR and use the concept of a Data Protection Impact Assessment?
  • What major provisions and principles apply for an international data transfer and how should key challenges be overcome effectively?
  • How to balance the conflicting rights to academic freedom and, on the other hand, to informational self-determination
