ELI Webinar on the Data Act: How to Boost the European Data Economy?


The European Law Institute is organising a webinar on 24 May 2022 at 18:15 pm (CEST) on the occasion of the European Commission proposal for a Data Act.

The new measures complement the Data Governance Regulation proposed in November 2020, the first deliverable of the European strategy for data. While the Data Governance Regulation creates the processes and structures to facilitate data, the Data Act clarifies who can create value from data and under which conditions.

ELI supported the Commission with its ALI-ELI Principles for a Data Economy and by submitting a Response to the European Commission’s Public Consultation on the Data Act, among many other initiatives in the field. The webinar, which will take place on 24 May 2022 from 18:15-19:45 (CEST), will aim at discussing the Data Act and its potential to boost the European Data Economy.

Confirmed Speakers include:

  • Malte Beyer-Katzenberger (Team Leader, Data Policy and Innovation, Directorate-General for Communications Networks, Content and Technology, European Commission)
  • Ioana Hreninciuc (Chief Product Officer, Homa Games) Paul Keller (Director of Policy at Open Future)
  • Pascal Pichonnaz (Chair; ELI President; Professor, University of Fribourg)
  • Marc Rotenberg (President, Center for AI and Digital Policy (CAIDP); Adjunct Professor, Georgetown Law)
  • Christiane Wendehorst (ELI Scientific Director, Professor, University of Vienna, Co-Reporter of the ALI-ELI Principles for a Data Economy)
