Through the management of the knowledge generated by the IDIBGI, we monitor, analyse and publicize the research outputs, processes and activities carried out at the institute, alongside the indicators used to assess the running of the institution and the quality of the research to implement improvements and to disseminate our science to society.
At the same time, it is essential to make the results of the research generated available to the scientific community and to society. For this reason, the IDIBGI has begun the process of research data management and has established systems to facilitate Open Access to research data.
The different good practices that have been agreed by the university can be found at the following links to the web page of the Consorci de Serveis Universitaris de Catalunya (CSUC) “Recommendations for research data management” and are the following:
Carrying out a research project involves the processing of special data categories, and therefore the provisions established in article 9 of Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council, of 27 April 2016 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data (GDPR), must be taken into consideration.
Likewise, the regulations established by Organic Law 3/2018, of 5 December, on Personal Data Protection and the guarantee of digital rights (LOPD-GDD) must be complied with, especially Additional Provision 17.2 of the same, which outlines the criteria for the processing of research data.
TICSALUT, as Data Protection Officer, from the Department of Health and its bodies, through expert work groups, has drafted the following documents in response to the application of the previous legislation on Data Protection. We provide you with this documentation that is especially important for our research team, as is File 5 - Contents of research protocol, which must be taken into consideration when writing the protocol to present to the Ethics Committee, which is the body that will assess the contents of the protocol to give its approval from the perspective of data protection.
Conversely, we provide File 4 - Use cases for research data, which determines the cases in which the data can be used for research purposes. And lastly, we provide you with the Guide to the assessment of issues arising from the regulations on Data Protection in research projects, which is the informative guide on the main aspects regarding data protection that must be taken into consideration when assessing research projects, both by the expert member on data protection of the CREC, and by the assessors. The previous files are annexes to this guide, which can give us a broader view of the objective of the law.
TICSALUT has also drafted File 2 - Draft of informative clauses and File 3 - Personal / pseudonymized / anonymized / anonymous / encoded data. It is very important to take into account the differences between these concepts, because depending on how the data can be classified, more or less exhaustive information will be required.
