Mandatory data-sharing versus data sovereignty

Science|Business Data Rules webinar from 15:30 to 17:00 CET 

This Science|Business online webinar will explore how policymakers could and should shape the flow of data between countries and between the public and private actors. It will discuss the trade-offs between maintaining data sovereignty and harnessing data for the greater good, and how to enable data to flow more freely across the private and public sectors and academia.

After the event, Science|Business will publish a report summarising the discussions.
