In cooperation with MEP Miapetra Kumpula-Natri

In the second #DataTalks policy breakfast meeting we discussed data-sharing for sustainability purposes, with specific attention to data-sharing requirements between businesses. New data governance frameworks can hold great potential for an ecological transformation of our economy, by supporting sustainable production and consumption patterns. But will the Data Act and other upcoming EU laws deliver on this?

Philipp Staab and Dominik Piétron, respectively Professor and Research Associate at the Humboldt University Berlin, kicked off the discussion, based on FEPS Policy Study Sustainable Digital Market Design: A data-based approach to the circular economy’, of which results were presented during the event. In it, they argued for mandatory data-sharing obligations for suppliers, producers and operators for circular value ecosystems and ecologically oriented innovation.

Then, Luc Hendrickx, Director at SMEunited, sketched to what extent the B2B provisions of the proposed Data Act correspond with the imperative of a circular economy. Is the Data Act as it stands – and in combination with other relevant EU proposals – sufficient? What is needed? Afterwards, the discussion was opened up to input from participants.

The event took place at FEPS’ headquarters and was co-hosted by MEP Miapetra Kumpula-Natri.
