Privacy and personal data protection are often seen as main barriers for sharing, opening and re-using data. In the context of growing support for open science, including the concepts of open research data and optimal re-use of data, it is time to move this debate forward. This symposium will attempt to do just that. Starting from testimony on the Open Research Data Pilot in Horizon 2020, it will explore the concept of 'Privacy by Design' as a possible way forward, and will discuss the case of text and data-mining (TDM). The Symposium will then turn towards developing an action plan regarding open data and privacy that will feed into the Open Science Presidency Conference being held in parallel on 4-5 April in Amsterdam.
