If you are an SME or a start-up interested in data access and sharing, you can have a say on the challenges you face by participating to a webinar organised on 29 May 2017.
You’ll also be able to listen how other SMEs and start-ups access data and build their business models and what their needs and the barriers are
This dialogue with stakeholders follows the adoption of the Communication on Building a European Data Economy and its accompanying Staff Working Document. Results will feed into the Commission’s initiatives on data announced in the Mid-term review of the 2015 Digital Single Market strategy.
The study presents the findings of the monitoring tool on data workers, the value of the data market, the number of data user enterprises, the number of data companies and their revenues, and the overall value of the impact of the data economy on EU GDP. The findings will feed into further developing the Digital Single Market in the EU as data is a catalyst for economic growth, innovation and digitisation across all economic sectors, particularly for SMEs and start-ups.
