This Summer Course will be held on September 1st, face-to-face and there will also be the possibility of participating live online through ZOOM. On September 2nd it will be entirely live online. In the registration process, please select the participation of your choice: face-to-face or live online.

The course is designed on the basis of experience in biomedical research projects and in the evaluation of proposals in this field, in which the ethical and legal implications of the international circulation of data are decisive. In this sense, there are important sectoral initiatives, focused on certain areas (for example, cancer, as is the case of the EUCANCan project) and other cross-sectional ones, such as the 1 Million Genomes initiative, driven by the European Commission.

The application of the General Data Protection Regulation raises many questions regarding the procedures to be followed in these data flows.

In order to contribute to the knowledge of this regime and to share different experiences in projects of an important dimension, the course has been structured in two sessions: the first one, as a general overview, in which the technical, scientific and legal bases will be described, and a second one in which problems and solutions in specific situations will be analyzed.
