A Code of Conduct on Data Protection for Responsible Research and Innovation (CCDP)

Why do we create a Code of Conduct on Data Protection for Responsible Research and Innovation (CCDP)?

There are multiple codes of conduct relating to responsible research and innovation. However, these existing codes of conduct do not seek to provide guidance on data protection principles, which is a gap this CCDP seeks to fill. The CCDP seeks to be an introductory text to data protection principles, and does not seek to cover all aspects of the GDPR that may be of concern to researchers.

The CCDP aims to provide an easy-to-understand set of conduct rules that cover the main principles provided in the EU’s General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR), as well as a set of desirable practices, specifically tailored to the research community.

The PANELFIT project has also created ‘Guidelines on Data Protection Ethical and Legal Issues in ICT Research and Innovation’ , which aims to be much more comprehensive in this regard.

The purpose of the Code of Conduct on Data Protection for Responsible Research and Innovation (CCDP) is:

The CCDP seeks to help researchers understand the basic principles that underlie the data protection law in Europe and to equip them with the knowledge on how to practically apply those principles as part of responsible research and innovation.

Levels of consultation:

The CCDP seeks to involve multiple stakeholders in its review and obtain as much feedback as possible. The consultation steps that have been developed are described below and the form is shared to receive feedback from interested people.

  • Consultation internal experts PANELFIT -Closed-
  • Consultation external experts -stakeholders- -Ongoing-
  • Consultation researchers -Coming soon-
  • Public consultation -Open-
