Creating Data Economy at a Glance

Digital transformation enters a new phase in Europe. Governments and industries are working hard to unlock the unprecedented potential the latest technological developments offer. The challenges cover multiple aspects and levels: technological, legal and cultural. Governments not only need to accelerate the digital transformation of public services but also to open to closer cooperation with the private sector to address issues such as data protection and information security. The private sector needs to receive better access to public data to realise its economic potential and to get more legal certainty while using open data.
