Data Protection in Research Projects

To obtain consent from the subjects of your research project, please find below our sample consent form:

Declaration of Consent for Research Projects (DOCX, 56 KB)

Additional requirements apply to research projects that fall under the Human Research Act (HFG). A corresponding declaration of consent is in progress.

Data-Sharing-Agreement for research-cooperations

If you want to share personal data with someone who is working on an external research project or with whom you share common research interests (e.g. as part of a research collaboration), this is referred to as data transfer between data controllers (so-called controller-to-controller transfer).

If data is transferred across national borders, we recommend that you additionally protect the personal data with a contract. If you transfer personal data to a country that does not have an adequate level of data protection (see the box on the right/below), a contract must always be concluded. Below you will find the model contract to be used in such cases:
