Research Research Data Management Data Protection & GDPR Data Protection

Data Protection

Research projects often involve the processing of personal data. With the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in 2018, researchers are challenged to find their way to build compliance with the GDPR into their research plan.

Data protection is not just about security. The GDPR gives extra emphasis on transparency and the rights of the participants. Processing personal data in research requires a legitimate base. Building on ethical best practices, the special needs of scientific research are recognised within the legal framework.

The essence of the data protection may be represented using six protection goals.
