SAMRA invites you to attend an introductory webinar which will be the first presentation in a series of three, addressing the Protection of Personal Information Act (POPIA), its implications for the research industry and the connection to ethics.
Dr Elsa Thirion-Venter will present the background to POPIA on Wednesday, 16 March at 17:30-18:15. She is the Board member responsible for the Governance, Code of Conduct and Legal Portfolio. She is also a SAMRA Accredited Researcher, a SAMRA honorary member and the chairperson of the SAMRA Ethics Committee.
This session will be followed by two interactive sessions where two lawyers, Dr Stefan Vos (svmra) and Ms Mercia Fyn (Kisch IP Attorneys) will address specific research relevant POPIA issues. Questions from members will be addressed in these sessions which are to be held in April. Based on these sessions a reference document will also be made available on the website to all SAMRA members.
As these sessions build on each other, we strongly advise members to attend all three sessions.
