Pursuant to EU Regulation No. 679/2016, the training on protection of personal data is mandatory* for all staff members, regardless of the nature and duration of their contracts (therefore also for statutory bodies members, PhD, trainees, students, in-house consultants, affiliates, ...).

We wish to point out that training is, first of all, an opportunity that those who process personal data on behalf of FBK cannot and should not miss, so that they are able to process those data in full cognition of the facts, appropriate knowledge and competence.
