The Data Sharing Coalition welcomes proposed Data Act of European Commission

This content was created by the Data Sharing Coalition, one of the founding partners of the CoE-DSC.

The Data Sharing Coalition welcomes the legislation that is proposed by the European Commission to ensure that more data becomes available for use in the data economy while ensuring that data remains sovereign and is used for authorised purposes only as controlled by the entitled party.

The Data Sharing Coalition encourages the objectives of the Data Act to improve fair access and portability of data, since this is considered a key enabler of value creation in the data economy. Businesses should have a lawful basis for data sharing like consumers have under GDPR, in particular for data that they generated themselves using machinery (IoT) and computer tooling (software, hardware). Businesses should be provided the tools and mechanisms to access and transfer their data to any 3rd party based on their consent. Releasing these data will spark new value creation and services.

In further advancing the Data Act, the Data Sharing Coalition encourages the Commission to set the right values and principles for access and use of data such that the market can develop the supportive infrastructure and technology for data sharing.

The benefits of combining data spaces and Privacy Enhancing Technologies

The benefits of combining data spaces and Privacy Enhancing Technologies

Data spaces and Privacy Enhancing Technologies have a common goal: making insights from data accessible in a confidential manner. But the development of both is driven by two different communities. This must change. By applying PETs within data spaces, confidentially exchanging insights from (privacy sensitive) data becomes more scalable.
