Communication on Building a European Data Economy

Article
This Communication looks at proven or potential blockages to the free movement of data and presents options to remove unjustified and or disproportionate data location restrictions in the EU. It also considers the barriers around access to and transfer of non-personal machine-generated data, data liability, as well as issues related to the portability of non-personal data, interoperability and standards.

This Communication is accompanied by a Staff Working Document on the free flow of data and emerging issues of the European data economy.
