The main focus of the Sonar-Global Platform is the integrated networking database of social sciences, for which Sonar-Global collects data in all countries addressing infectious threats and engaging in the SoNAR-Global Platform by participants’ self-completion of an online profile subscription. The purpose of this database is to compile the names, specializations, professional experience, training and contact information of social scientists around the world. It can be accessed through password-protected access by relevant actors, organizations and institutions seeking your expertise in a particular domain of infectious threats. To join the networking database, SoNAR-Global requests that you provide your professional information as well as your training and contact information.
This database is in conformity with EU regulation on ethics and personal data protection and management. It is open to all members of the Sonar-Global Platform, subscribed on a voluntary basis. All participants must follow an opt-in process. Your rights to access and alter your collected personal data and to withdraw your consent to participate are respected.
Below is additional information on your rights:
Sonar-Global is responsible for declaring the database to the relevant European regulatory authorities for personal data and to other committees according to country or regional regulations.
We collect and provide information on EU and non-EU individual participants and institutions. The database includes participants from low resource countries. To promote equity, information is provided on an open basis to low resource participants and countries, with priority given to web technology that can be used in regions with low connectivity.
