ELSA Webinars Academy on Data Management
ELSA Webinars Academy on Data Management is organised by the ELSA Maastricht.
As we find ourselves in the crossover from the automated to the programmed, and from the physical to the virtual, it has been undeniably established that technological development has taken our legal systems by storm. With our lives surrounding and arguably depending on being digitally connected, ELSA Maastricht wishes to explore the legal implications of such nascent technologies.
Our programme endeavors to take participants on a journey, starting from concrete European legislative instruments to the abstract grey areas of data management. We aim to equip participants with basic knowledge on the topics of the General Data Protection Regulation, intellectual property, artificial intelligence and human rights. Over the course of six days, academic study will be taught theoretically during lectures and worked out practically through interactive workshops and debates. Additionally, for a well-rounded experience, social and cultural activities will help you unwind in the afternoons.
ELSA Webinars Academy on Data Management is a platform for any motivated and ambitious student to be taught by leading European professionals and gain valuable insight and experience.Apply before May 1st, 2021 for a spot on our immersive ELSA Webinars Academy!
