The European Commission has published a guidance note on ethics with a specific focus on data protection.
The document addresses various aspects of ethical data handling within Horizon 2020 projects, such as:
- Pseudonymisation and anonymisation
- Informed consent
- Data security
- Deletion and archiving of data
- Data protection officers
The objective of this guidance note is to ensure that, in addition to respecting legal obligations, all Horizon 2020 stakeholders are guided by ethical considerations.
