GDPR and Your Research - Implications for researchers from May onwards (10am, North Training Room, BLU Library)

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will come into effect in May 2018 and will impose new obligations on Organisations that process personal data in the EU. By harmonizing privacy legislation in the EU whilst also excluding some scientific and research areas, GDPR seeks to reconcile sometimes competing principles of privacy and innovation. What does this mean for you as a researcher? Come along to find out and hear about what you need to do to be GDPR compliant from May onwards. Facilitated by Jennifer Ryan (Data Protection Officer TCD).

Data Management Plans for your Research (11am, North Training Room, BLU Library)

This is a workshop to equip attendees with data management knowledge and skills and linked to the earlier presentation on GDPR; ensuring as a researcher your handling of data is in line with best practice will be important in order to remain on the right side of GDPR regulations. This workshop should equip you with the knowledge of how to do so. Facilitated by Geoff Bradley.

Writing your research impact case study (12pm, North Training Room, BLU Library)

Maximising your citations and research for impact as an early career researcher is crucial for advancing in your career and development. Chances are your research has benefited the real world and this session will equip you with the know-how required to represent this in a measurable way. Facilitated by Niamh Brennan.

1.    International Postgraduate Research Conference (TBSI & Science Gallery)

Register to Attend HERE!

The main theme of the conference is ‘knowledge and memory’ with each individual research theme relating back to this. The purpose of the main theme is to allow enough room for early career researchers to explore the various sessions in a way which does not restrict research works to one discipline. The breadth of presentations received successfully achieved this objective

In line with our University’s vision of being an Institution of global consequence, this conference seeks to realise the potential of our early career researchers as part of our college and global community whilst also furthering our understanding of key issues in society. This event also seeks to address some of the critical questions that have been raised, as part of technological developments and developments in the 21st century.

The following key pillars/research themes will be explored in inference sessions:

1. Foundations to Future Innovation

2. Human Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

3. Cultural Reflection and Transformation of Identity

4. The Longevity Dividend

In addition to this, we will have complimentary sessions which further explore the themes outlined, as well as a panel discussion on the ‘The future of Research in Europe’ where we will be joined by the President of EuroDoc, Gareth O’Neill as well as a panel of experts. We are further delighted to receive a keynote address from Prof Patrick Walsh who will explore the links between research funding under FP9 and the sustainable development goals. The conference will be launched by Professor Chris Morash the current Vice Provost of Trinity College Dublin at 5.30pm on March 15th.

A variety of social activities which will introduce attendees to the history of Dublin, and indeed the history of Trinity College are provided for. More info available at
