Training & Events

The DCC is actively involved in sharing digital competence with researchers and research support staff in the form of thematic and recurring training and events. With this programme, we facilitate the exchange of information and expertise between research support groups and researchers interested in developments in research IT and data.
Below you can find our current offer of training & events.

For some of the training modules offered we will group researchers of the 'Social Sciences and Humanities' and 'Science and Engineering' domains as much as possible.
For 'Medical Sciences' please look towards the training offer of the UMCG DCC.

Also check the calendar to stay up-to-date on what's coming up and get the specific dates to these courses.

Consultation hour: Privacy in Research

Do you wonder how the GDPR applies to your research? Do you want to know how you can handle personal data of your participants in compliance with the data protection principles of the GDPR? Or do you want some hands on advice on how to safely transfer and store personal data during and/or after your research?

You came to the right place! In this consultation hour, we will guide you through the data protection principles of the GDPR, while pointing out practical solutions to specific cases. To be able to come up with solutions that apply to your research, we encourage you to send your dilemmas in advance. After your registration, we will contact you with more details on how to do so.
