Webinar: Research data and Swedish law, GDPR and immaterial rights

Welcome to the third part of a webinar series on good data management. Learn more about how the Swedish law, GDPR, and immaterial rights may affect research data management.

Research documents, including articles and underlying data, are official documents at SLU. There are archival requirements as for official documents from, for instance, education and university administration. In this webinar, you will learn about other legal aspects with regard to research data. Researchers often process personal data – either directly, performing surveys or interview, or indirectly, collecting information from landowners or animal owners.

Most of us have come across GDPR but probably do not know what you must, can, and cannot do with personal data according to the law and SLU regulations. Further, we will go through the basics about immaterial or intellectual property rights, business patents, and copyright when it comes to research data. There will also be time for questions.

Speakers: Henrik Leffler and Simon Åkerblom (SLU Legal affairs), Hanna Östholm (Data Management Support).
