The European Union’s struggle to bring its data protection rules into the 21st century continues-haltingly-as the EU itself enters its new era, with a new European Parliament, a new President-designate of the European Commission, and a new European Commission due to take office in November.

The European Union’s struggle to bring its data protection rules into the 21st century continues-haltingly-as the EU itself enters its new era, with a new European Parliament, a new President-designate of the European Commission, and a new European Commission due to take office in November.

This has left the pharmaceutical sector, already out of breath from its struggles to catch up with data disclosure, in a new race-to avoid becoming a victim of excessive data protection. The latest entry in this race is a working group that the European Forum on Good Clinical Practice has set up to explore the issue from the perspective of research.

Peter O’Donnell outlines the working group’s efforts in this Applied Clinical Trials article.
