Data privacy in research and RDI ethics
Data privacy and RDI ethics at HAMK
Data privacy practices and ethical principles are at the heart of our high quality research, development and innovation.
On this website, we have compiled information on data privacy in research and RDI ethics at HAMK.
Data privacy in research projects
Projects must also take into account the legislation on the processing of personal data. The general principles relating to the processing of personal data are:
- Use of secure tools and procedures
- Collection of personal data relevant to the research
- Purpose limitation
- Wherever possible, research data will be anonymised or pseudonymised. However, pseudonymised data is still personal data. For international research projects, it is particularly important to anonymise data if the data are processed outside the EU/EEA.
Heigher education institutions and research institutes work together to prepare a code of conduct for research. This page and related guidelines will be updated as new guidelines become available.
HAMK’s detailed guidelines for data privacy are available on HAMK’s intranet (requires login)
