Horizon 2020: Connect the community of Data Protection Officers (DPOs) and other Privacy Professionals within them, and with the Belgian Data Protection Authority (DPA), through a GDPR collaboration platform; DPO-Connect

Project Details


Firstly, the project will result in an improvement of the knowledge of the profiles of the target group, their concrete challenges and needs for support. The second result will be the empowerment of the target group as they will receive different types of practical support to better exercise their function. Consequently, this will lead to a strengthened data controllers’ and possessors’ compliance with the GDPR. Ultimately, this will by itself enhance the level of protection of personal data of citizens. Lastly, the transfer of the project’s experience to national DPAs is expected to impact the way they interact with their own stakeholders.
