Last Thursday and Friday, we started the European-wide launch of our animation video which can be used to inform patients about the reuse of medical data for scientific purposes and privacy. This video can be used as part of the data protection strategy within institutions to help comply with the transparency principle of GDPR. In order to be useful throughout the biggest part of Europe, the video was developed in 17 different languages. Remark that, although glioma is used as a case sample, the video is applicable for all types of medical data and all types of pathologies.
WE NEED YOUR HELP TO GET THIS VIDEO DISTRIBUTED OVER EUROPE!
We would like to reach as many people as possible, who would benefit from using this video. This starts of course with the Data Protection Officer of your institution or hospital, but also those of collaborating hospitals, patient organizations, universities, journals, and conferences. They can show the video in the waiting room, embed it on their website, or share it on their social media.
To help you out, we have prepared several tools: language-specific webpages and email templates in those 17 languages. You can find all email templates here and the web pages on our website: glimr.eu/gdpr-video.
Additionally, all videos can be found on our Youtube channel, to be shared via your social media. Don’t forget to tag us #GliMR @COST18206. Finally, don’t hesitate to contact local media or politicians about our tool, using our press release.
Thank you for taking your time! We would love to hear if you manage to publish the video.

COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology) is a funding agency for research and innovation networks. Our Actions help connect research initiatives across Europe and enable scientists to grow their ideas by sharing them with their peers. This boosts their research, career and innovation.
This COST Action aims to build a pan-European and multidisciplinary network of international experts in glioma research, patient organisations, data scientists, and MR imaging scientists by uniting the glioma imaging community within Europe and progressing the development and application of advanced MR imaging for improved decision making in diagnosis, patient monitoring, and assessment of treatment response in clinical trials and clinical practice.
