Policy Panel Speakers

This panel brings the discussion to the policy and regulation levels. It bridges the viewpoints and experiences of researchers with broader issues such as orientations in public research policies; the new European GDRP (General Data Protection Regulation); the power of private digital companies and their, sometimes conictual, relationships with public authorities; reconciling the drive for technological innovation with lawfulness and deontology; data access for (public) research; integrity of research and the establishment of codes of conduct.
