In January 2017, the Commission adopted the Communication ‘Building a European Data Economy’, which addressed, among other topics, access and transfer of non-personal, machine-generated data in business-to-business constellations.
In order to deepen its understanding on B2B data data access and transfer in Europe, the European Commission in July 2017 launched a study in order to assess the quantitative dimension of data sharing and re-use between companies, identify missed business opportunities resulting from the lack of access to relevant data, and determine obstacles to and success factors for data sharing and re-use between companies in Europe.
The results of this study will be presented in the first part of this conference. Selected companies will be invited to describe their B2B data sharing practices.
In the second part of the conference, the European Commission invites stakeholders to debate the way forward in relation to fair principles for access and transfer of non-personal, machine-generated data in business-to-business constellations.
