The best way to deal with this situation is having an European research partner, able to gain an ethics approval through a Data Management Plan that ensures the transfer of anonymized data to Australia. If you have the IRB approval fom your Australian instiution it should bet not a unsurmountable problem.
Hope this helps,

Tema: [SOCNET] EU Privacy Law and Network Data Collection

I'm emailing to see if any networks researchers have been impacted by the EU General Data Protection Regulation implemented on 25th May this year (https://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/EN/TXT/HTML/?uri=CELEX:32016R0679&from=EN).
My research team is working on a project where we plan to collect network data from a number of subsidiaries of a multinational corporation, and then transfer the data to Australia (where the team is based) for data processing and analysis. Three of the MNC subsidiaries are located within the EU, and it seems the GDPR might present significant obstacles to collecting network data within the EU and transferring it outside of the EU.
Do any Socnet members have a good understanding of the implications of this legislation for network researchers, and suggestions for how we might work around it? If so I'd love to chat!
