The Governance of Data in a Digitally Transformed European Society (Workshop Report)

The Governance of Data in a Digitally Transformed European Society (Workshop Report)

This JRC report summarizes the contributions and discussions of the second DigiTranScope workshop, held at the Centre for Advanced Studies of the Joint Research Centre in Ispra, on October 24-25, 2018.

Participants from academia, research, consultancy firms and public sector attended the workshop, which examined the theme of data governance – envisioned broadly, both as governing data and governing with data.

The event addressed issues such as the changing flows of data between big high-tech companies, individuals and public institutions, as well as the significance of the open data culture within public bodies and the growing demand for improving citizens' control of their personal data.

The overall purpose of the workshop was to identify European strategies to maximize the benefits data could bring to policy makers and the public sector while simultaneously empowering citizens and supporting new businesses.
