Last week, a proposal for a Regulation on European data governance was published by the European Commission. The measures are the first ones announced in the 2020 European strategy for data which is a great step for the success of Europe´s digital transformation.
The goal is to improve data availability from the point of view of increasing trust between data intermediaries, as well as strengthening data exchange mechanisms across the EU focussing on the following points:
- Making public sector data availble for re-use, in situations where such data is subject to rights to others
- Sharing of data amon businesses, against remuneration in any form
- Allowing personal data to be used with the help of a “personal data-sharing intermediary”, designed to help individuals exercise ther rights under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
- Allowing data use on altruistic grounds
