BRUSSELS PRIVACY HUB
2nd European Data Protection Law Summer School: The GDPR is Now
The Brussels Privacy Hub is proud to announce the 2nd European Data Protection Law Summer School, which will take place between 26 - 30 June 2017. Building on the success of the inaugural 2016 session, and under the title ‘The GDPR is Now’, the 2nd European Data Protection Law Summer School will equip participants to adequately tackle the advent of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and prepare them for the many challenges ahead. This practical dimension will be combined with a more general exploration of the evolving global and European privacy landscape, with a particular emphasis on transatlantic issues, and current policy debates.
The Brussels Privacy Hub’s European Data Protection Law Summer School has a marked multi-stakeholder character, and stimulates networking opportunities allowing participants to engage with the principal EU data protection institutions and actors in Brussels. Teaching staff will consist of leading academics in EU data protection law, public and private legal practitioners and representatives of key EU institutions such as the European Data Protection Supervisor (EDPS).
