About the project

The global data economy is booming, but there is still uncertainty about how to deal with data as a new type of asset from a legal point of view. The Principles for a Data Economy provide clarity that is urgently needed to foster innovation and growth and to reduce obstacles for all stakeholders in the data economy.

Who has what kind of rights, e.g. with regard to data generated by connected devices? Which contractual rules should apply when data is supplied by another party?

These are just two of the questions the ALI-ELI Principles for a Data Economy are dealing with. Find out more about the project in this video. A full text version of the ALI-ELI Principles (Final Council Draft) can be accesed here.
