The new European legislation on data protection, namely, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), has introduced comprehensive requirements for the documentation about the processing of personal data as well as informing the data subjects of its use. GDPR’s accountability principle requires institutions, projects, and data hubs to document their data processings and demonstrate compliance with the GDPR. In response to this requirement, we see the emergence of commercial data-mapping tools, and institutions creating GDPR data register with such tools. One shortcoming of this approach is the genericity of tools, and their process-based model not capturing the project-based, collaborative nature of data processing in biomedical research.We have developed a software tool to allow research institutions to comply with the GDPR accountability requirement and map the sometimes very complex data flows in biomedical research. By analysing the transparency and record-keeping obligations of each GDPR principle, we observe that our tool effectively meets the accountability requirement.The GDPR is bringing data protection to center stage in research data management, necessitating dedicated tools, personnel, and processes. Our tool, DAISY, is tailored specifically for biomedical research and can help institutions in tackling the documentation challenge brought about by the GDPR. DAISY is made available as a free and open source tool on Github. DAISY is actively being used at the Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine and the ELIXIR-Luxembourg data hub. [less ▲]

Human genomics is undergoing a step change from being a predominantly research-driven activity to one driven through health care as many countries in Europe now have nascent precision medicine programmes. To maximize the value of the genomic data generated, these data will need to be shared between institutions and across countries. In recognition of this challenge, 21 European countries recently signed a declaration to transnationally share data on at least 1 million human genomes by 2022. In this Roadmap, we identify the challenges of data sharing across borders and demonstrate that European research infrastructures are well-positioned to support the rapid implementation of widespread genomic data access.

A new European regulation on data protection is currently keeping organisations across Europe busy in adapting their procedures, policies and documentation to meet the new requirements. For research, this regulation will have considerable consequences as well. An important aspect is the transparency of the processing of personal data in research. An overview of the changes due to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is describe and recommendations for information of study participants in clinical research and documentation of research activities to achieve GDPR compliance are given. Also the challenges resulting from the new Regulation are addressed. [less ▲]

Efficient translation of research discoveries into clinical application is essential to improve human health and maintain Europe’s competitiveness in biomedical research and in health industry. A major bottleneck is the lack and the frag- mented nature of research infrastructure and know-how, leading to unacceptable delays or preventing of the development of new innovative medicines. The aim of EATRIS, European Advanced Translational Research InfraStructure in Medicine, is to fill this gap by developing a pan-European research infrastructure. [less ▲]
