On Wednesday 25th of April 2018 took place the first edition of Luxembourg’s ‘Data Conversations’ series, themed over the new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which provides new and updated rules for the protection of personal data which will become applicable in a month on the 25th of May 2018. Six speakers and more than 60 researchers and research support officers participated to the event.

Organisational and practical advice were given, for instance getting the habit to encrypt portable devices containing personal data.
Four researchers then presented their case studies of how the GDPR is going to affect their own research. (…)
