BPH Privacy and Data Protection Doctoral Seminars

BPH Privacy & Data Protection Doctoral Seminars


The Brussels Privacy Hub (BPH) is organising a Doctoral Seminar series to give the opportunity to Ph.D. candidates working on privacy and data protection topics at the Law, Science, Technology and Society (LSTS) to present and discuss their work in progress. The aim of the series is to offer Ph.D. students at all research stages a training ground to refine and practice debating their scientific work, and to receive qualified feedback and questions from their peers and privacy and data protection experts. To this aim, each seminar will include a short presentation by the Ph.D. candidate, followed by an open discussion session with the audience. Seminars are also open to external participants.


Seminars are generally planned for Mondays from 12.30 - 13.30 as a working lunch, where participants can bring along their own lunch. Precise announcements of dates and topics will be made in advance via email.
