In particular, the workshop focuses on the ethical and legal issues in data sharing and handling confidential information in the light of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The workshop is based on the online Data Management Expert Guide which was developed by the Consortium of European Social Sciences Data Archives (CESSDA ERIC).

Then participants will have the opportunity to work on assignments in small groups focusing on ethical and legal aspects of RDM such as informed consent. The afternoon session will focus on examples from the Netherlands and there will be room for discussion during an interactive question and answer session with an panel of (international) experts.
