  • knowledge society

Since 25 May 2018,the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the new legal basis for any processing activity of EU citizens' personal data. Path to compliance is nevertheless still far from being easy for European cities. EUROCITIES' Knowledge Society Forum has therefore identified the sharing of good practices as a priority in the frame of its data working group.

EUROCITIES is now conducting a survey to assess the different approaches and levels of readiness of its members towards compliance. Our objective is to identify needs and gaps encountered by cities in the implementation of the legislation, having in mind to build peer-learning and capacity-building activities.

Your reply to the questionnaire will help define the scope of the GDPR experts group and identify the right person in your city who could contribute and benefit from this new collaboration. We foresee a series of online and offline meetings and activities. We propose that city-to-city guidelines could be one of the main outcomes of the collaboration.

The questionnaire can be downloaded on this page (log-in required). Once completed, please send the questionnaire back to
