Legal Aspects in Life Sciences 4

Data Protection in International Research Cooperations 

Research in the life sciences sector takes place in most cases across national borders. Personal data is being shared from the setup of a research project to the final solution, therapy or product. Especially after the latest rulings at the European Court of Justice in 2020 (Schrems II) the transfer of this data is an enormous challenge. Whether the Standard Contractual Clauses (STC) of 2021 will be able to solve the data protection issues after the EU-US Privacy Shield has been invalidated is to be discussed.
