Name Implementation of the data protection directive in relation to medical research and the role of ethics committees
Acronym PRIVIREAL
Area
Start Date2002-01-01
Duration42 months
StatusCompleted
DescriptionProtection of privacy of subjects in medical research depends as much on ethics review as on data protection law, but little is known about how this interacts with implementation of Directive 95/46/EC to protect privacy. PRIVIREAL brings together experts on relevant law and on ethics review of medical research from across the EU and Norway to evaluate the interaction between implementation of the Directive and research ethics review in protecting Directive rights of research subjects, with a view to making recommendations to the Commission about how to optimise protection provided by research ethics review (taking into account the background EU and domestic legal and ethical culture/s). A consultation will be conducted, employing inter alias a web site. There will be 3 workshops, the proceedings of which will be published.
