European Data Market Study and Opening Private Sector Data to Public Authorities - Discussion panel

Home » News » European Data Market Study and Opening Private Sector Data to Public Authorities - Discussion panel

As part of an ongoing, multi-year investigation into the evolving dynamics of European Union data markets, International Data Corporation (IDC) and the Lisbon Council invite you to this interactive webinar. Participants will learn the latest about the state of play on European data markets – including updated indicators – and brainstorm to identify new emerging data-related issues and analyse the emerging data ecosystem. The discussion will feed directly into the Data Market Study – a multi-year, European Commission-led project that aims to quantify the European footprint in this area. The project will produce an all new European Data Market Monitoring Tool later this year, which will be previewed in the webinar. Participants will also discuss the benefits, challenges and methodologies of opening up private sector data of public interest for public authorities.

Learn about the second phase of the project and the new paper during the webinar which will take place on 14 November at 14h30 CET.
