Beyond GDPR: Next Steps to a Healthy, Vibrant, World-Leading Data Economy in Europe

07/03/2019

European policymakers, successful entrepreneurs and top data-economy analysts convened in Brussels for the High-Level Workshop on Beyond GPDR: Next Steps on the Road to a Healthy, Vibrant, World-Leading Data Economy in Europe, a half-day brainstorming on the future of the European data economy, co-hosted by the Lisbon Council and Sitra, the Finnish innovation fund. Mario Nava, director of horizontal policies at the European Commission’s DG financial stability, financial services and capital markets union, kicked-off the discussion with an overview of the lessons and early learning of the Payment Services Directive 2 (PSD2). Janna Sinipuro, director of Sitra’s human-driven data economy project (IHAN), presented Sitra’s vision of a “fair and functioning data economy.” The high-level discussion – which included senior executives from fintech, health, data management and other sectors – will feed directly into the Green Paper on the European Data Economy, a new policy brief that will look at the emerging post-GDPR data market in Europe and make concrete proposals for helping Europe attain world leadership in this key part of the digital economy. The paper is being co-written by Luukas K. Ilves, deputy director of the Lisbon Council, and David Osimo, director of research, and will be co-published by the Lisbon Council and Sitra on the eve of the Finland Presidency of the Council of the European Union.
