30days30ways campaign/Monika Al Mufti research work

We're waiting for Melanie Pike to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Loughborough University,

I am writing in relation to Monika Al Mufti, a PhD student/researcher at your University.

Monika is a co-founder of the 30days30ways campaign (30days30ways.org.uk) and an active director of EVAQ8, a company selling emergency kits and products.

Monika's PhD research is on the 30days30ways campaign.

What I would like to know:
- Are organisations and inviduals engaging with the 30days30ways campaign aware that their data and interactions with the campaign and associated social media element of the campaign may be used in Monika's research?
- Has Monika received eithical approval for use of data generated by a public campaign in her research?
- Is Monika using data from her research generated from the 30days30ways campaign to further the commercial interests of her commercial business EVAQ8?

Yours faithfully,

Melanie Pike

Dear Ms Pike,

I am writing in response to your Freedom of Information request dated 10 September 2019. Please find below information relating to your enquiry.

- Are organisations and inviduals engaging with the 30days30ways campaign aware that their data and interactions with the campaign and associated social media element of the campaign may be used in Monika's research?

Yes. Organisations and individuals that are engaging with 30days30waysUK are aware to the extent that the campaign is fully transparent and in the public domain on social media. In addition, previous annual reports are publicly available via the website.

- Has Monika received eithical approval for use of data generated by a public campaign in her research?

Monika's ethical approval for the data to be used in her research is currently pending and thus she has not actually collected any data for her research. Any data referred to as part of the campaign is already in the public domain.

- Is Monika using data from her research generated from the 30days30ways campaign to further the commercial interests of her commercial business EVAQ8?

No. Please see the response to your second question regarding the collection of research data. Further, Monika is not using any of the open source data for commercial interests. Monika's work is entirely a self-funded voluntary contribution to further emergency risk communication understanding worldwide.

I hope this information is useful but if you require any further assistance please do not hesitate to contact me.

If, for any reason, you are dissatisfied with the way in which your request for information has been handled, you may invoke the following complaints procedure: http://www.lboro.ac.uk/admin/ar/policy/f...
