Description

The General Data Protection Regulation applies throughout the EU. It should therefore be interesting for all CIVIS universities how data protection issues are clarified at the individual locations. There may be supra-regional data protection bodies that are involved. And/or there are data protection officers at the individual universities, possibly also outsourced. The question of how data protection issues are communicated within the university and how data protection questions are passed on from the scientific community to the responsible offices should also be considered. The aim of the exchange is to present and reflect on the university's own solutions and to find out how the situation at the university can be improved. IT-related details of data protection should not be discussed in the group, at least not primarily. Concrete data protection issues, on the other hand, could be discussed in greater depth if they are of interest to the group. The fourth session should also serve the purpose of evaluating the previous exchange and discussing the desire or need for a continuation, possibly with changes in the format. It should then also be clarified whether and how technical data protection could be included in the general or supplementary exchange.

Targeted audience

  • Data protection officers, persons in computer and legal departments or other administration related to (primarily non-technical) data protection.
  • No more than three people from each CIVIS university should attend if possible.

Format

The event will be held online.

Description

The purpose of the event is to jointly explore student influence, focusing on student representation, and how it could contribute to enhance the quality of CIVIS courses and programs. By student influence we mean how students in different ways can participate in and influence the creation and further development of courses and study programmes as well as actively influence their study situation. The introduction of the event will cover different forms of student influence, such as student representation, course and program evaluations, student unions and student councils. It will also include a presentation of the CIVIS Student Council, which gathers students from all CIVIS universities to report and discuss relevant issues facing CIVIS. Next, we will discuss “Why student representation?” and get some good examples from different CIVIS universities of how they facilitate student representation. The meeting will end with a discussion of how to work further with the matter.

Targeted audience

  • Hub Council Coordinators, Work Package Leaders for WP2 and WP8, Project Managers at each CIVIS University and Coordinators from Aix Marseille University.
  • 1 or 2 experts of students representation (or similar) from each of the CIVIS universities.

Description

The welcome activities are events that introduce students to the student life at the university. The activities are designed to assist students during their new student phase so they gain knowledge of practicalities and of student life. For international students there are also activities aimed at introducing them to their new home town and country. The two day activity will be based on exchange of experiences and best practises on how to welcome new students and on orientation activities. Each participating university will host a session where they share their experiences on welcoming students and how these activities are carried out at their university. The sessions will all be held by Zoom but each university can decide on the format for the session and e.g. mix presentations with break-out-room discussions and other dynamic activities. The length of the sessions will depend on the number of participating universities.
