The European Commission has launched an open public consultation on the announced Data Act aiming to create a fair data economy by ensuring access to and use of data, including in business-to-business and business-to-government situations. The consultation seeks to gather views from citizens, businesses, online platforms, academics, civil society, administrations and all interested parties. It is open until 3 September.

“The Data Act will unlock vast troves of industrial data and contribute to the emergence of a sovereign single market for data. European data, in particular industrial data, needs to be shared, stored and processed in line with European rules such as data protection, respect of intellectual property and trade secrets.”, said Thierry Breton, Commissioner for Internal Market.
