China's New Data Law:

Implications of the law for Danish-Chinese Research Collaboration 


Organizers: Social Science @ Sino Danish Center for Education and Research (SDC) and Innovation Centre Denmark (ICDK) in Shanghai

On November 1, 2021, the new data law of China, the Personal Information Protection Law (PIPL), will be enforced. PIPL sets fundamental requirements for handling of information for entities and regulates cross-border data transfers.

As the new data law is likely to have a strong impact on research in and on China, we have set an international panel of experts to explore the following questions:

  • How does PIPL impact research at a broader scale?
  • How does it fit China’s data policy framework?
  • What are the challenges and opportunities raising from PIPL?
  • How is PIPL likely to impact Danish-Chinese research collaboration?
