Brief description of the meetings:
The aim of the training meetings is to investigate the technical and organisational measures needed to ensure better personal data processing in accordance with scientific research purposes. It is widely known that the processing of information related to individuals for research purposes represents an essential part of daily researchers’ activities. In particular, the use of personal data is deemed beneficial for the elaboration of models, the verification of theories and the improvement of knowledge. The age of digitalisation has made collection, storage and further circulation of personal data much easier and faster for scientists. Nevertheless, it is necessary to find, in practice, the equilibrium between the "wheel of progress" and data protection. Accordingly, special emphasis should be placed on the technical and organisational measures, as well as on the task of those who supervise research projects. The proposed methodology is settled between a legal and a practical approach, in order to consider the effects of both individual fundamental rights and public interests over personal data processing.
