Seminar on the Economy of Data
Brussels - 01/06/2022
The Foundation, in partnership with Alphalex Consult and IDFRights, is organising a seminar on the data economy on 1 June. The event, which will be held in Brussels and broadcast online, will be opened by the European Commissioner for the Internal Market Thierry Breton, and the debates will be chaired by former journalist and MEP Jean-Marie Cavada.

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.

Keynote speech by Thierry BRETON, European Commissioner for the Internal Market
Welcome speech: Jean-Dominique GIULIANI, President of the Robert Schuman Foundation
Introduction: Henri THOME, CEO of Alphalex-Consult

Two panels chaired by Jean-Marie CAVADA, President of the IDFRights
