Good practices in research 

"Researchers should at all times adopt safe working methods compliant with national legislation, including taking the necessary precautions to ensure health and safety and to overcome the consequences of IT-related disasters, for example by establishing appropriate backup strategies. They should also be aware of existing national legal requirements regarding data protection and confidentiality protection and take the necessary steps to meet them at all times. (extract from the Charter for European researchers)
