Responsible Openness: What you need to know to get started today – RDA 10th Plenary Collocated event

CIPP’s Pierre-Emmanuel Moyse speaking at Research Data Alliance’s 10th Plenary session, to be held in Montreal. He will be participating in a panel on on Security, Intellectual Property, Privacy, and Integrity of Open Research Data, held on September 18th in collaboration with Université de Montréal, the Cyberjustice Laboratory and the Chaire LexUM, where he will discuss Licensing Open Research Data.


Description (From the RD Alliance Event page:

“Research projects handling data come under scrutiny when they seek to obtain funding, with the principal investigator asked to present a responsible data management plan. This inevitably raises a number of questions concerning the privacy, security, property, and integrity of data. These concerns lie in the realm of law and ethics, and the most brilliant PIs find themselves ill equipped when confronted to them.

With the objective to promote Open Data sharing, with a particular focus on Open Research Data, the event aims to accomplish three objectives:

  1. Inform about issues related to data privacy, security, and intellectual property.
  2. Promote responsible Open Data sharing through legal and ethical considerations.
  3. Propose a framework for a responsible data management plan (DMP) for research.

A panel of four legal scholars will use knowledge mobilization strategies to provide an overview of the legal considerations surrounding data use, focusing on how heeding to privacy, security, intellectual property, and ethical concerns can promote Open Data sharing.

The panel will be animated by a data science expert who will elaborate on strategies to construct a robust data management plan and summarily expose a number of existing technologies that can be utilized by researchers to ensure adherence to the normativity of Open Research Data.

Throughout the seminar, participants will become familiar with the legal and ethical landscape of research data, understand the advantages of leveraging constraints into responsible open data streams, and develop a toolset to assist them in handling data collected, generated, used or shared in their own endeavors, in compliance with the principles and values of Open Research Data.”
