Data Access
& Sharing

Advancing a trusted and responsible framework
for data sharing in Europe

20 February 2020

Microsoft Center in Brussels

Overview

Taking place around the release of the European Commission’s new data strategy, this conference will convene policymakers, industry, experts and civil society stakeholders for a discussion on the future of data access and sharing in Europe. It will look at the open data opportunity, including cross-sector and business-to-government data sharing.

Data, how it is shared, with whom and under what conditions, is a key consideration for a wide range of digital policy discussions currently taking place across Europe. From technical discussions around the collection, quality and usability of data, standards and compatibility, through to competition and how value is determined and derived from data sets, work is underway to provide better definition and clarity on how data are and should be shared in order to pursue Artificial Intelligence breakthroughs and achieve a functioning and globally competitive digital economy in Europe.

Key Themes Include

DATA ACCESS

How open data fits into the broader picture of innovation and what the public and private sectors can do to advance data access for all

DATA SHARING REGULATIONS

What might cross-sector data-sharing regulation look like and how would it work in practice?

THE DATA OPPORTUNITY - USE CASES

Use Cases: Releasing siloed data to enable innovation - what's being done already?

PRIVACY & SECURITY

Privacy & Security: How do we ensure easier data sharing doesn't present new user risks?

The Open Data Opportunity

The value of data ultimately comes from the outcomes that can be achieved with the data. The combination of disparate datasets can help researchers generate otherwise unforeseen insights by improving AI models – the more data is combined, the more value can result from the collective. Both the private and public sectors have an opportunity to make data more open and accessible. This session will focus on effective models and frameworks, including business-to-government and business-to-business scenarios, that can foster greater data access for companies and countries of all sizes.

Data Sharing & Access: Addressing Privacy, Security & IP Challenges

Demands that companies should share their proprietary data in order to boost innovation are growing, but do such calls recognise the complexity, both legal and technical, of what such data access and sharing entails? There are, however, examples such as PSD2 and Open Banking, which offer glimpses of what may be possible across sectors, under the appropriate conditions. What role can data institutions such as data trusts play in balancing privacy, security and ownership concerns with maximising the public and commercial benefits of data. This session will focus on the latest thinking around the legal and regulatory considerations of sharing data within and across sectors, that need to be considered as the EU ramps up its work in the area.
