Data is the new fuel of the economy. The success of companies such as Google and Facebook is built on data. Data has also become key in sectors such as the automotive industry, for the health sector, and in the area of finance.
This workshop is an opportunity to have your say on how to unleash the full potential of data for Europe. It is part of a structured dialogue with Member States and stakeholders following up on the proposals of the Communication on Building a European Data Economy which describes the potential of data and sets out ways in which to optimise access to and re-use of data for the benefit of the economy and society.

Panel 2 - Towards an EU framework for free flow of data and data portability
