The Data Protection Impact Assessment (DPIA) tool for research and innovation healthcare projects is now available in both English and Spanish


The tool and methodology to conduct Data Protection Impact Assessments (DPIA) in the healthcare field are now available in open access both in Spanish and English.

These resources, which were initially published in Catalan, are the result of the collaboration between the Data Protection Officer (DPO) of the Foundation TIC Salut Social and the Bioethics and Law Observatory - UNESCO Chair in Bioethics at the University of Barcelona.

This is an agile tool to conduct DPIAs in research and innovation healthcare projects, based on the model of the Catalan Data Protection Authority. With this initiative, the DPO Office contributes to the standardization of the methodology and criteria to help the healthcare entities to carry out their tasks.
