Webinar JUNE 28: GDPR and the Canadian Research Landscape


CANARIE and Research Data Canada (RDC) are inviting researchers to tune into a webinar they are hosting on June 28, 2018 at 1:00 PM EST. Presented by James McGregor, Associate Director, Strategic Projects and Services, Public Knowledge Project (PKP), this webinar will focus on the GDPR as it applies to Canadian researchers and research organizations, informed primarily by the Public Knowledge Project’s understanding of the issue. Register here.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the European Union’s new comprehensive set of regulations for the handling of personal data on the Internet by service providers, and is pertinent to anyone who manages personally identifying information of EU citizens. Any organization that gathers data from EU citizens (even something as simple as IP address information) should fully understand what the GDPR means, what needs to be done to comply, and whether any exemptions (in particular for this conversation, for scholarly or journalistic content) may apply. 

This webinar is hosted by Research Data Canada (RDC). Please see the details below if you wish to register for more information on the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Canadian Research Landscape.
