Towards a European-Governed Data Sharing Space


Last week the Big Data Value Association (BDVA) released the second version of the position paper: "Towards a European-Governed Data Sharing Space", this time addressing how data exchange can be enabled and AI potential can be unlocked.

In this position paper, ideas for implementation and recommendations are presented.
