Support for legal aspects of research data

In your research project, there are, at various stages, legal aspects to address, with regards to research data. Intellectual Property Rights, Contracts and Agreements, Privacy and Data Protection all can play a significant role in your research. We can support you with answering these questions.

  • Privacy in a nutshell

    With regards to privacy, we all have two perspectives: how is our privacy protected and how can we, as a researcher, protect the privacy of the people involved in our research - 'the data subjects’? If you wonder why privacy and data protection are relevant in your research and would like quick access to what is meant by privacy and data protection, please have a glance at these one page reference cards, for the basic relevant context.

    Please find the Privacy Reference Cards Why and What below:
