CEPS publishes a policy brief on the Data Act

March 7, 2022

The Center of European Policy Studies produced a policy brief “The EU Data Act: towards a new European data revolution?” on the regulatory intention behind the Commission proposal. The authors highlight that a variety of the Member States and other stakeholders are not necessarily aligned with the Commission’s regulatory intentions and that the final proposal is likely to be subject to fierce inter-institutional negotiations. They caution that, ultimately, this might significantly reduce the scope of the Data Act, therefore not leading towards a new European data revolution. In addition, they stress the importance of achieving effective enforcement across Member States agencies, given the high number of EU initiatives in the field which might lead to overlapping competencies.
