5 May 2017 • Lunchtime Lecture - Data Ownership: A data protection perspective, Prof. Dr. Gloria Gonzalez Fuster

The notion of data ownership is surfacing more and more frequently in discussions about data policies, in particular at European level. As different types of knowledge production, the economy, and even our societies as such are increasingly portrayed as being 'data-driven', the issue of who can decide what happens to data (and with data) has become critical.  

 

This event will explore data ownership from the perspective of European personal data protection. It will consider questions such as: Are data subject rights a manifestation of any 'ownership' of personal data? How can such rights be reconciled with other concomitant types of 'ownerships', if any? Does the understanding of this notion vary in other legal frameworks? And what are the fundamental rights implications of these discussions? 

 

The progamme is now available. 

 

The event will be held from 12:00 - 14:00 at the Institute of European Studies (Lower Ground Floor Institute for European Studies, VUB, Pleinlaan 5, 1050, Brussel).

Lunch will be included. 

The event is free to attend but capacity is limited, so registration is required. For more information please contact

19 May 2017 • Lunchtime Lecture - The Right to Data Portability, Dr. Vagelis Papakonstantinou

The right to data portability is listed among the most important novelties within the GDPR, both in terms of new control rights granted to data subjects and in terms of its intersection between data protection and other fields of law (for example, competition law, intellectual property, consumer protection, etc.). Despite of its internet social media origins, that perhaps continue to shape its public perception, the right to data portability, particularly if interpreted in an expansive manner, may find application in numerous fields and industries involved in personal data processing. Its exact content is, therefore, of crucial importance. This lunchtime seminar is aimed at highlighting the raison d’ etre of this new right to data portability, its potential scope, as well as its relationship to other individual rights within the GDPR. 

 

The event will be held from 12:00 - 14:30 at the Institute of European Studies (Lower Ground Floor Institute for European Studies, VUB, Pleinlaan 5, 1050, Brussel).

Lunch will be included.
