Forthcoming Event – GDPR and Openness

There was a discussion point raised at the Open Access Scotland working group ( in September, to consider the new General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) and Open Research. In response to this Valerie and I have set up a meeting on 31 January 2018, at the university of Glasgow.

Focusing on implications for practitioners working on open research (articles, data etc.), the GDPR session will offer some insights into how GDPR may affect Higher Education Institutions and how HEI’s can prepare for GDPR.

Draft Agenda

11:00-12:30 Presentation on GDPR

12:30-13:00 Available Resources and steps to compliance

13:00-13:45 LUNCH

13:45-14:45 Brainstorming sessions

14:45-15:30 Knowledge sharing and actions

If you would like to join this GDPR discussion please sign up at

The venue can accommodate approximately 40 people so we kindly ask for just one representative from each institution, once we have an idea of attendance we will invite more people to join us.

If you are not able to join us, but have questions around GDPR please drop me an email. We will discuss various questions on the day and provide a summary of the meeting as soon as possible after the 31st of January.

Kindest Regards
