Leading with the vision to the future of data empowered citizens, businesses and societies
The European data economy provides for the wellbeing of people, and fosters a culture of innovations and meaningful work based on the responsible use of data and a human-centric approach.
By unlocking the potential of data, industries are scaling their value-creation capabilities. Data is reused and shared across borders and between sectors in ways that respect the rights to data and that build trust-based relationships in data exchange and value networks.
Through forward-looking policymaking, conditions for data connectivity and interoperability are established to benefit all stakeholders. The use of data is based on reasonable and non-discriminatory terms that drive openness in innovations, fair competition and collaboration.
Data principles have practical impacts on the application of user-centric technologies, scalable service solutions and future-ready infrastructures to pave the way towards inclusive, equitable and sustainable growth.
Data principles guide us to find necessary measures towards a human-centric, thriving and balanced data economy. Share your views on the following principles – and make suggestions how to make these principles even more feasible?
A human-centric, thriving and balanced data economy is based on data use that builds on the rights of individuals, on a fair operating environment for organisations and on a well-functioning society. We need to focus on collaborative measures that effectively balance the different needs of stakeholders for data use. To do this, we need to ensure that all stakeholders are provided with the necessary abilities to use data.
Therefore, data principles are based on the abilities of people, organisations and societies to access, share, act, innovate, trust and learn with data.
