    The European Commission has published a guidance note on ethics with a specific focus on data protection.

    The document addresses various aspects of ethical data handling within Horizon 2020 projects, such as:

    • Pseudonymisation and anonymisation
    • Informed consent
    • Data security
    • Deletion and archiving of data
    • Data protection officers

    The objective of this guidance note is to ensure that, in addition to respecting legal obligations, all Horizon 2020 stakeholders are guided by ethical considerations.
