This report presents a set of indicators measuring the European population of 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. All indicators are presented for the years 2013 through 2016 and forecasted to 2020, exploring three alternative potential scenarios of evolution: Baseline, High Growth and Challenge scenarios.

Experts estimate that thousands of exabytes of data are in the hands of private companies. Much of that data – on topics as diverse as car movements, medical histories, key population trends, even water consumption - could yield interesting and potentially valuable information on matters of great public interest.

What is the trade-off of opening up scientific data? How to enjoy the benefits while minimising the drawbacks? These questions are the core of the sectoral analysis “Opening Up Scientific Data for Innovation”.

"The coolest thing with your data will be done by someone else". This old motto remains valid today. The very nature of big data is that they can be reused for purposes different from the one for which they were originally gathered. While traditionally the open data movement has focussed on how the private sector can create value from data held by government, the opposite case deserves also policy attention. Indeed, data held by the private sector can be used to address public issues.
