A great course which made the most out of the limited time of one week. There were great lecturers, a tight but nice schedule, enough time to socialize with other participants, all set in a beautiful town in the centre of Western Europe. The only weak part was the coffee.
Overall the course is good, but in my opion to focused in the European Institutions and not in the private sector.
Great course which was organised at the right time!
It is an excellent training ! Great organization and very useful.
The course was very well organised; all presenters were highly knowledgeable; presentations very effective and to the point. EIPA team were very supportive and friendly. One important aspect has been the possibility of networking with your colleagues from all around of Europe (EU institutions and the private sector). Social events/dinners were organised in very nice places. Indeed, I was surprised about the quality of the food! I definitely recommend this course to who needs a deep knowledge of the GDPR.
I would recommend this very good course to private sector lawyers with already some experience in the data protection field. You may attend the course without any previous knowledge, but to a more experienced lawyer the fantastic line of speakers gives an excellent opportunity to rise discussions in more complex matters and actually get answers that help to solve the matters. Additionally, I would say that, having a lot of experience with similar course programs, this one was very well organized and left a feeling that it was time well spent. I do hope that EIPA will offer additional expert level courses in the future.
Thanks for a great week with in-depth covering of all the aspects of the EU's new General Data Protection Regulation + quite a lot of other related information. It was a tremendous lot of information to assimilate during one short week, but with the help of great tutors, in-depth discussions with fellow students, practical exercises and workshops, and comprehensive presentations, I feel that it was possible to assimilate the essence of the material and that I now have a good platform for further development of my skills in this area and thus beeing able to render my clients with useful services and advice:)
A really great course with varied presenters from across the spectrum of Data Protection. The organisation of the course was excellent and the location in Maastricht was fantastic. I felt the course offered a lot of opportunities to network and to benefit from the experience and knowledge of fellow participants. Would highly recommend it to anyone with an interest in Data Protection.
Course that addresses the main themes of the General Data Protection Regulation, with a good balance between theory and practice.
A very detailed course on GDPR and European Regulations. It will be of particular interest to those in EU Institutions or in Public sector organisations.
Very good overall course that I would highly recommend to those who want to improve their Data Protection skills.
On a side note, I would advise further marketing effort on the private sector thus increasing the quality of the examples and networking opportunities.
The course was very well organized by EIPA (logistics, meals, documentation, final exam, etc.) and the lecturers were real experts who shared their knowledge and experience in data protection matters in a very practical and enthusiastic way. I really liked this course and would like to recommend it to anyone who has to work in this area.
This is a very useful course with great lecturers, which is very well organized.
An excellent program. I was overwhelmed with the number of experts with practical experience on Data Protection. It was an eye opener and a great experience. I took down two sets of notes, one for my pre-exam revision and the 2nd for my to do list. I kept reflecting on my organisational processes and policy documents, what I learnt will go a long way in making my organisation up to date with international best practices.
On the soft side of the program, keep up the good planning. Congratulations to the whole team!
A well-structured course on Data Protection, ranging from understanding the philosophy and core objectives to applying the methods suggested in GDPR. The experts are very helpful and willingly share insights of the topics and practices. The peers are excellent and dynamic. Discussions both in and out of the classes are indeed helpful to clarify the insights and applications of them. Very helpful team of organisers and supporting staffs. Very impressed with the course.
Among the many other Data Protection trainings I've attended I found EIPA's a great source of information. Nevertheless, the key success factor here is the way the training is developed and implemented. You'll not find a mere revision of GDPR (and other related data privacy laws) contents, but how they have been implemented by the panelists in their respective fields of knowledge and current professional roles, mostly in EU institutions. The approach given to the sessions (combining theoretical and practical information) makes it easy to understand the sharpen topics of the law. A special mention to the high level of knowledge from my colleagues (coming mostly from public bodies and institutions) that enriched debates. The schedule was really tough and intense but also lightened by social events and networking spare time. Highly recommendable.
A well built course, very much worth it - the topics of lectures take you through the main components of Data Protection, crucial institutions, complex issues, the current state of affairs, future trends. The lecturers are professionals representing key European institutions. Discussions flow freely alongside theory and includes group work as well as plenty networking with your peers.
I was positively surprised with this course. I had the opportunity to learn from the best-of-the-best in the field of Data Protection which was both an overwhelming and enlightening experience! The course programme accomplished the challenging task of balancing practical and theoretical content. I could also benefit from the extraordinary diversity of the colleagues with so many different experiences, knowledge and professional backgrounds which enriched this learning experience even more. A special note also to praise the very good organization, logistics, and the resources provided for the course, and to thank the courtesy and care with which the participants were treated. I would definitely recommend this course to any professional in the Data Protection field has an important reference in their professional path!
Despite the fact that the course had to be online, i certainly enjoyed having this course.
Because it gave me a good documented and practical view and insights of the GDPR. Compliments on the organisation and the lecturers.
Very good and complete training. Both the lecturers and organizers made from this first online training of one week a success. Although the exchanges are more difficult and participants are not equally involved in the online environment, the information transmitted was exhaustive and the lectures explicit.
This course guides you through a really inspiring journey in the world of data protection. It's highly recommended both for newcomers in the field and for privacy professionals!
I would like to thank you once again for the courses and the organisation of the seminar. The presentations were of high quality and the speakers were very exciting. Even though I am very aware of all the topics linked to data protection, it was great to have new views on all of that. I will report my director and of course recommend the courses to my colleagues.
I really appreciate the training. I would have loved to have more time debating. I will participate in future events/trainings as I found the speakers to be excellent professionals.
The training is excellent in respect of the knowledge one acquires during its course on all subjects concerning the world of the GDPR. Beginners definitely reach a very good level of understanding of all related matters and more advanced professionals are also benefited especially through the discussion of real-life examples.
The presenters do a very good job of constructively interacting with participants and are very kind - their expertise and knowledge are with no doubt.
The organizers of the event are true professionals, always there to help and proactively take care of all relevant issues.
I am very pleased with the quality of this course, of the course materials and of the speakers. It has been a very intense week, and although, due to Covid, the entire course was held on-line, everything was on spot and there was a good connection with the presenters and with the other participants during breaks.
