Hands-on Data Anonymisation 2023

In this 2 x 3-hours workshop, we will cover the concepts of anonymisation and pseudonymisation and apply them in practice to various types of quantitative and qualitative research data. Come and learn by doing!
Hands-on Data Anonymisation


Hands-on personal data anonymisation and pseudonymisation.

The goals for this 2-days-workshop are practical: to have people actually minimise/pseudonymise/anonymise personal data in many of its forms and also use modern techniques for working with personal / sensitive data. There will be a conceptual introduction on day 1, other days will cover tools for (pseudo)anonymising personal data.

Who can participate?

Anyone who works with personal data in all its forms (background variables from questionnaires, medical images, health data, geospatial location data, speech, videos, pictures, etc…).

Learning Outcomes

  • Understanding the basic concepts and limitations of anonymisation and pseudonymisation 
  • Automating anonymisation for tabular data using Amnesia
  • Anonymisation for complex datasets: Faces in pictures and videos, speech, geospatial data, medical data.
  • Anonymisation in qualitative research (interviews, text).
  • Advanced techniques for working with sensitive data when anonymization cannot be achieved (data synthesis, federated learning and differential privacy)


A two days three-hours webinar. 1 ECTS credit is available for those students who are willing to do some extra homework.

Schedule and location

The training will be held online via Zoom on April 18th and April 20th, at 12:00–15.00 Eastern European Time (EET).
