Responsible Openness: What You Need To Know To Get Started Today – RDA Event September 18th

I will be participating at the Responsible Openness: What You Need To Know To Get Started Today – RDA 10th Plenary Collocated Event taking place in Montreal on September 18, 2017.

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. 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.

I will be presenting on “Handling Sensitive Data and Managing Privacy Issues“.  Co-panelists include Pr. Nicolas Vermeys (PhD) presenting on “Securing Open Research Data in the Cloud”Pr. Pierre-Emmanuel Moyse (PhD), presenting on “Licensing Open Research Data” and Michèle Stanton-Jean (PhD) presenting on “Ethical Considerations and Integrity of Open Research Data“. We 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 data science expert Paul F. Uhlir 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.

This RDA 10th Plenary meeting collocated event is presented by Montreal Cyberjustice Laboratory and the Université de Montréal Lexum Chair.
