Event description

Description

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which provides new and updated rules for the protection of personal data, will become applicable on 25 May 2018. For the first edition of our 'Data Conversations' event series, we will therefore focus on this important and imminent topic. It will be an opportunity to come and listen to fellow researchers who will present in lightning talks how GDPR is going to affect the way they manage their research data. The floor will then be opened for questions and discussion with the presence of an expert panel on GDPR.

What are Data Conversations?

Research data is a crucial pillar of the research process. Data Conversations are all about bringing researchers together to share their data stories, discuss issues and exchange ideas. Whether it is about data creation, collection, use, processing, sharing or management; whether it is about lessons learned from your own failures (#DataHorrorStories) or successes in dealing with data; Data Conversations aims to make the exchange happen.

The usual format will be a 2 hours session with lightning talks and open discussion/debate time.


Who should attend?

Researchers and research support staff from any research institution in Luxembourg and any discipline; from early career to established and leading researchers.


Can I present my data story?

Yes! Data Conversations is all about researchers sharing their data stories with other researchers. We are still looking for speakers (10 minutes lightning talks) so feel free to register as a speaker and contact data.conversations@uni.lu
