European Union
GDPR white Paper

Published in June 2020, read this white paper to navigate share plan research in compliance with GDPR regulations.

GDPR is a complex and multi-faceted set of rules and many concepts and terms in the regulation remain relatively vague and ambiguous, especially in consideration of the accountabilities and limitations of research entities. Due to the voluntary nature of academic research, many researchers and organizations may be overwhelmed by GDPR and choose not to conduct research impacted by GDPR due to its complexity.
