Workshop on data portability and data access for industry representatives

On 16 November, the Tilburg Institute for Law, Technology & Society (TILT) and the Tilburg Law and Economics Center (TILEC) in collaboration with the Jheronimus Academy of Data Science (JADS) are organizing an interactive hands-on workshop on the topic of data portability and data access at the campus of Tilburg University.

The workshop aims to bring representatives of different industry sectors together (such as energy, health, finance, telecom, agriculture, automotive and data analytics) to exchange views on topics at the heart of current regulatory and policy debates, including:

  • the implementation of the right to data portability of the General Data Protection Regulation as applicable from May 2018
  • access to data as incorporated in the recent Commission proposal for a Regulation on the free flow of non-personal data, and
  • fairness of business-to-business relationships for which the Commission is currently preparing a legislative proposal expected to be released by the end of the year.

We ask: your input on how such initiatives affect your business, what issues you face in implementing new legislative requirements and what hurdles you experience in your sector regarding data access and reuse

We offer: a unique opportunity to get acquainted with ongoing policy initiatives and to interact with academic experts as well as other industry representatives on these topics

Your input will be used to further shape an ongoing research project being conducted in collaboration with industry and responsive to ongoing policy discussions at the EU and national level.
