Overview

Handling and managing research data has never been easy, but in the wake of GDPR and Brexit the process has become even more complex.

With key-note addresses from the ICO and leading University Researchers, delegates will explore the importance of legal compliance to recent policy changes, as well as hearing from experts and sharing best practice in the field of RDM.

We will unpack the ambiguities around GDPR compliance, review the importance of Open Data, and shine a spotlight on health data, the UK Data Protection Act, and a look ahead to the data requirements for REF submissions.
