The proposed regulation includes several measures to increase trust in data sharing, rules on neutrality to allow “novel data intermediaries” to function as safe data-sharing organizers, and practices to give Europeans more control over how their data is used. The commission also published a frequently asked question page to coincide with the announcement.
The proposal is the first of a set of measures announced in the 2020 European strategy for data. The instrument aims to foster the availability of data for use by increasing trust in data intermediaries and by strengthening data-sharing mechanisms across the EU.
