Workshops & Roundtables

The STAR project nears its conclusion, therefore, to introduce the final results of the project, two final events were organized:

  • Wednesday, 17 October 2019 Brussels, Belgium 12:30-14:00, U-residence, Vrije Universiteit Brussel, 1050 Brussels
  • Tuesday, 22 October 2019 Tirana, Albania 16:30-18:00, Side Event of the International Conference of Data Protection and Privacy Commissioners

These events introduced and discussed the final results of the STAR project (co-funded by the European Union (EU) under its Rights, Equality and Citizenship programme (2014-2020)) which supports training activities of EU Data Protection Authorities (DPAs) and Data Protection Officers (DPOs) on the EU data protection reform, and especially on the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The panel identified the challenges and best practices around data protection training. The panels then launched the ready-made, easy-to-customise and easy-to-run training materials, (i.e. 11 Microsoft PowerPoint presentations, training scenarios, further supporting forms as well as a handbook for trainers and users of the materials) targeted for DPAs and DPOs and which are freely and publicly available in a digital form at the project’s website: During the event speakers guided the audience through the STAR materials and, in form of a discussion, gathered their feedback and experience from training activities thereafter.


Furthermore, STAR has developed three videos to be posted online. Using a video should allow potential users of the training materials to access this in their own time, and be a more permanent resource from the project.

The three videos are:
