Overview


On 22 April, Microsoft will convene the third instalment of its “Data Sharing in Europe” series, to coincide with the anniversary of the launch of its Open Data Campaign. One year on, this event will also be an occasion to take stock of the progress made on the objectives outlined in the European Commission’s Data Strategy and look more closely at the recently released Data Governance Act (DGA). The DGA, the first legislative proposal stemming from the European Data Strategy, is an opportunity to develop a better culture of data sharing in Europe. Done right, it can contribute to boosting Europe’s data economy, and help drive the type of data collaborations necessary to support the EU’s Artificial Intelligence and Digital Transformation objectives.

This interactive digital event will provide a forum for the policy, business, and data communities to re-convene once again and discuss ways to foster greater data sharing and collaboration in Europe. Building from best practices and use cases, a panel of selected speakers representing European institutions, businesses and the open data community will outline proposed solutions for the Data Governance Act to create trust and enable voluntary data collaborations between different actors of the European data economy
