Maastricht – Data Management


ELSA Maastricht is proud to present the first edition of its Summer ELSA Law School on Data Management! The participants will be introduced to the field of personal data management in enterprises not only to achieve compliance with applicable legislations but also to extract value from them.

At the end of the data-centric week the participants will have gained thorough knowledge of the General Data Protection Regulation, cybersecurity principles, intellectual property and competition-related aspects, as well as ICT contracts to support the data-centric economy. The summer school will consist of interactive lectures, workshops and case studies to combine theory with practice and stimulate critical debates.

The participants will learn a multidisciplinary approach to personal data governance which is essential for future practitioners in such field. Data will be placed at the centre of attention and the participants will be invited to look at them from several practical angles.

Besides the multidisciplinary approach to personal data governance, the summer school will also involve a multitude of social and cultural events to introduce you to the heart of Europe and make your week memorable!
