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.
