On April 12th 2019 BDVA releases a Position Paper called "Towards a European Data Sharing Space: Enabling data exchange and unlocking AI potential". The successful development and adoption of a pan-European data sharing space will mark a milestone in the evolution of the new data economy. The envisaged macro-level space can incorporate existing vertical, cross-sectoral, personal and industrial data spaces, offering services and experimentation opportunities to all stakeholders. It also needs to adhere to and promote European values, e.g., democracy, privacy safeguards and equal opportunities. These values can become the trademark of European data economy technologies, products and practices. Find the paper here.
