The Brussels Privacy Hub is proud to announce the 4th European Data Protection Law Summer School, which will take place between 24 - 28 June 2019. Building on the success of the first three years, the 4th European Data Protection Law Summer School will equip participants to adequately tackle the implementation 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.
