SERISS Workshop - Legal and ethical issues regarding data collection from a researcher’s point of view

The workshop will take place as a side-event during the ESRA conference in Zagreb, on 15 July 2019, from 09:00 to 12:00.

A good balance between research and privacy interests is crucial to secure personal data in research. A legal framework that explicitly allows data producers and data controllers to disseminate data within and across national borders is essential to ensure sustainable and harmonised access conditions in Europe.

The aim of this half-day short course is to give researchers knowledge on how to process personal data in compliance with the law and ethical principles.
Researchers will gain knowledge of the different legal grounds that exist for using personal data in research.

The course will provide concrete and practical examples of collecting, reusing and sharing personal data. In addition, it will act as a forum for discussion and sharing of experiences.

As a result of the short course, participants will have gained basic knowledge about privacy legislation and consequences for research and cooperation across institutions and countries. They will have basic knowledge of data management, including archiving and reuse of data (including personal data).
