European companies' data sharing
With the objective of assessing the economic value and potential of data sharing between companies in Europe, and to understand the success factors of data sharing between economic operators, the European Commission has launched a survey to gather information from companies that are either sharing data or re-using data.
This survey is part of the first comprehensive study that has ever been carried out in Europe to ascertain the economic and innovation potential of data sharing. The survey is available here in different languages and will be open until November 11.
Your involvement and participation in this survey are very important for the European Commission so that reliability can be conclusions can be drawn from a representative sample.
