Data Protection and the Ethics of Data Collection in Erasmus+ Projects
Data collection and analysis are becoming increasingly important in times of quantitative and qualitative indicator surveys. Against this background, however, the protection of personal data must be ensured on the one hand. On the other hand, when collecting certain data, awareness must be created that the data collection has a rich potential, for positive and negative uses. This must also be addressed in the application for a project. The application of the GDPR guidelines is handled very differently among different organization types applying for projects in Erasmus+.
This TCA is intended to provide applicants and ongoing project leaders with guidance on the do's & don'ts of data collection as well as on the applicable data protection regulations at the European level. Furthermore, an exchange between the participants on good practices in data protection and on ethical guidelines in Erasmus+ project work should be initiated.
Results to be expected are the expansion and dissemination of knowledge about applicable data protection regulations in projects, the sufficient handling and implementation of existing data protection regulations as well as the collection of relevant data sources and the establishment of ethical guidelines.
