This latest impact story showcases the project ‘Privacy in Research: Asking the Right Questions’, an engaging response to the challenges faced by researchers working with sensitive data. Commended as best practice by the Council of Europe, the project team has developed a portfolio of modular and interactive educational materials designed to help researchers and students navigate the maze of privacy concerns when embarking on research involving personal data covered by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). 

The project is important in the context of open science and the FAIR principles, as it facilitates the responsible sharing and reuse of data that is relevant for a range of research areas, as well as clinical applications, artificial intelligence and education more widely.
