This dedicated session is a very important step towards the creation, by the European Commission together with the interested Member States, of a legal testing framework for conducting experiments on the basis of harmonised rules on data access and liability.

This intention has been announced in the Commission Communication Building a European Data Economy, published in January 2017. Member States commitment will be codified by the signature of a Letter of Intent between interested Members. The agenda of the session also features interventions of Ministers, representatives of the European Commission and Members of the European Parliament.
