Our newly formed global Digital Rights & Assets group are delighted to present to you a podcast exploring some of the key issues relating to the European Commission’s draft Data Governance Act. In furtherance of its European Data Strategy, the Commission published the draft regulation on 25th November, seeking to bolster the European economy by setting up a framework to encourage data sharing and re-use of public sector data.

Panellists from several of Bird & Bird’s European offices share their thoughts on the draft, summarising the key provisions and discussing the political reception of the Act from Brussels and elsewhere. We also take a look at the interaction of the Act with existing EU data privacy laws and its likely impact on data business models.

We hope this is useful to you. Please feel free to share this with your colleagues and do get in contact with us should you have any questions.
