Research under GDPR
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) along with the Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA) sets out how personal data and privacy should be managed. The legislation applies to any research project which processes personal information.This also applies to research outside the UK that the University is involved in.
Undertaking research in an ethical, fair and lawful manner complies with the requirements for data protection legislation and must start prior to project approval by incorporating data protection and privacy into the research planning process. This guidance is intended to assist researchers with this.
