personal data.

What do you do in practice to help researchers with research data management? I have been involved in developing personal data templates such as Privacy Notice for Research Projects. I also go trough the Privacy Notice draft the researcher has written before it is given to research participants and I suggest changes if needed. I help with data agreements and data commercialization.
