Abstract

The Czech Academy of Sciences and Czech universities are in the beginning of the implementation of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). How to deal successfully with the GDPR in a specific environment that is often international, funded by many resources (a mixture of various national and international, public and private funds and companies, with their own financial and administrative rules), having their specific tasks, missions and cultures (academic freedoms, scientific excellence, competitive environment)? This article focuses on the GDPR's impact on the life of the research entities, such are research institutes and universities. The GDPR is an EU regulation that should have equal legal effect over the entire European Union; however, in certain specific parts of the GDPR specific implementing legislative measures are expected of the EU member states. Moreover, due to different history of the legislation regulating personal data protection in each EU member state, the article focuses mainly on the area of the Czech Republic. The scope of this article is limited to specific issues of scientific life (e.g. open access, open data, peer review), other general aspects of the GDPR (e.g. handling the employees’ personal data, the personal data of research subjects) are not the objects of this text.
