Events and Workshops 2021

This webinar was organised in cooperation with Research Compliance and Research and Transfer Support.


In today's digitized world, researchers are dealing with a variety of data more than ever before. On the one hand, researchers generate new data themselves; on the other hand, they use data to which others may have rights. Data has many faces: personal data, research data (with or without personal reference), business data (trade secrets) and many more. Often, you need data to get results. These are also multifaceted. Depending on the content and quality of the data or result, there are also different legal consequences. The webinar aims to give an overview of possible rights to data and results in research.

The focus is on data protection law, secrecy protection and copyright and patent law.
