Seminars for doctoral supervisors

Denna sida på svenska

The role of doctoral supervisor involves exchanging experiences with colleagues. The thematic seminarsprovide KI supervisors with a forum for competence development and regular opportunities to meet colleagues in a similar situation.

These seminars allow participants to discuss matters and exchange experiences relating to their supervisory role and to keep themselves updated on the latest news connected to doctoral education. The seminar programme varies; sometimes we invite speakers to share their own experiences as supervisors, or experts to hold talks on particular issues. The aims are to help participants understand their own position as supervisors and to inspire and encourage them to find their own ways of dealing with the challenges that the role brings.

What comes after PUL? New rules for research using personal data in 2018

Lecturer: Magnus Stenbeck, Docent, Senior Researcher. Department of Clinical Neuroscience, Division of Insurance Medicine, KI

  • October 12 at campus Solna

  • October 18 at campus Flemingsberg


The current Personal Data Act of Sweden will be terminated in May 2018, and other now existing legislation governing the use of personal data in research will be partly changed. A new Europe-wide regulation, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), will replace PUL. Additional new Swedish laws have been proposed by several official inquiries (SOU:s) and are expected to fill in the gaps of the new regulation where needed, among them a Swedish research data law. It will be necessary to learn these rules. The requirements on documentation to prove that your permissions to use personal data follow the law as well as organizing and documenting all the safeguards surrounding the handling of these data will increase. This lecture covers the basic and most important changes (as well as similarities with the old rules).     

The seminar is held in English.
