February 16th 2017
The School of Law at the University of Barcelona will hold the XI International Seminar on the UNESCO Universal Declaration on Bioethics and Human Rights: “Big Data in Health”, organised by the Bioethics and Law Observatory (OBD) – UNESCO Chair in Bioethics at the University of Barcelona and the Vice Chancellor for Research at the University of Barcelona, in the framework of the LERU thematic group on research integrity.
Focus of the seminar: Big Data analytics research seeks to exploit data sets (including but not limited to personal data) to establish correlations and trends and to improve decision making. This interdisciplinary seminar will examine Big Data research and innovation practices related to health and will focus on the ethical, legal and social issues. In particular, research integrity issues and privacy aspects will be analysed.
The seminar will include presentations, roundtable discussions, case studies and opportunities for networking, exchanging good practice and ideas for developing policy, guidance and training resources.
This international seminar is part of a series of seminars held every year at the University of Barcelona to analyse the International Declaration on Bioethics and Human Rights (UNESCO, 2005). In this case, Article 15 – Sharing of benefits and 18 – Decision-making and addressing bioethical issues, will be the framework.
