The market of industrial data is developing rapidly. For European institutions, the stake is to create the conditions for significant growth thanks to the data economy. For companies, the stake is to assess how far open data can go and to reconcile general and particular interests. The discussion will focus on European data initiatives: Data Act, Data Governance Act and their impact on access, re-use, ownership and contractual aspects of non-personal data.
