It will also carry out and publish studies and position papers, and educate stakeholders through campaigns, conferences and publications on the subject of data protection law.
Paul Micallef Grimaud, Claude Micallef Grimaud, Sharon Xuereb, Jackie Mallia and Philip Formosa will be the first administrators of the institute.
