Israel Tech Policy Institute & Tel Aviv University, The Stewart & Judy Colton Law and Innovation Program invite you to participate in our latest online webinar, The EU Data Strategy and the Draft Data Governance Act.

The draft Data Governance Act is one of the proposed measures for implementing the EC’s 2020 European Strategy for Data, which aims at giving the EU a competitive advantage by enabling it to capitalize on its vast quantity of data. The Data Governance Act will establish a framework for providing access to government data, regulating data intermediaries that provide data sharing services, and data altruism.

The Webinar will discuss the European Union’s Strategy for Data and the draft Data Governance Act.
