The EU’s Data Strategy from a multifaceted perspective. Views from Southern Europe.

The PromethEUs network organises a private event to initiate discussions and exchange of views amongst stakeholders from Southern European countries – Greece, Italy, Portugal and Spain – regarding the European Union’s Data Strategy. Stakeholders include representatives from the public administration, academia, private companies, industry associations, and think tanks.

The event is framed within the joint paper that the PromethEUs network is elaborating on the EU Data Strategy from a multifaceted perspective and it will have a policy analysis perspective focusing on the following areas:

  • Regulatory and policy aspects: Data Governance Act, Data Act, Open Data Directive, and their interactions with DMA, DSA, Declaration fo Digital Rights and upcoming ePrivacy Regulation.
  • Geopolitical aspects of the EU Data Strategy: EU-US Data Privacy Framework, data sovereignty.
  • The economic impact of data-driven innovation in Europe, including the role of SMEs in the integration of this EU Data Strategy.
  • Specific case applications of this issue into the health sector through the European Health Data Space.

PromethEUs brings together I-Com, Institute for Competitiveness (Italy), the Elcano Royal Institute (Spain), the IPP – Institute of Public Policy (Portugal), and the Foundation for Economic and Industrial Research – IOBE (Greece). This private event is specifically led by Elcano Royal Institute.

Participation is only possible by invitation.

On the 30th of may, the next event “PromethEUs Public Conference Data Strategy” will take place in Brussels. The panels are: “Maximising opportunities stemming from data spaces and data sharing” and “Regulatory initiatives under discussion and relevant challenges”.
