Data Governance, Data Protection and Privacy

This action (WP5) aims to analyze, in a multi-disciplinary perspective, why and how specific forms of data governance emerge as well as the consequences on the interaction between the state, the market and society. The focus will be on the challenges raised by the collection and use of data for privacy, on the data subjects’ rights and on the obligations of data controllers and processors. A Privacy Impact/Risk assessments methodology and software will be proposed. A case study will focus on medical and health data and make recommendations on how they should be collected and processed.
