DIGETIK ONLINE SEMINAR: How to address GDPR in digital research, April 21 2020

DIGETIK (a part of DIGHUMLAB) are inviting interested researchers for an online seminar (in Danish) about GDPR in digital humanities research. How do we interpret the legislation when we collect already existing data from the internet? What do we do if we want to use born-digital material, extract data from social media (automatically or manually) or carry out observation studies on digital platforms with thousands of participants?

At this seminar, you’ll experience GDPR expert Kathrine Tvorup Pajkes from Aalborg University. Kathrine is team leader for Data Protection in Research at AAU Innovation. During the seminar, she will dive into the challenges that Danish humanities researchers experience – especially when using digital data or performing research within the digital domain.

The seminar will be held in Danish. 

Sign up now at the bottom of this page. The registration deadline has been extended to April 17, 2020.

This seminar was supposed to take place at AAU in Copenhagen. Due to the COVID-19 situation, the organisers have decided to move the seminar online. The video link for the seminar as well as the final programme will be sent to the participants through e-mail.
