Open Future feedback to the public consultation

February 8, 2021

We submitted our Feedback to the Commission’s public consultation on the Data Governance Act proposal. In our submission, we discuss the proposal from a perspective that acknowledges the fundamental role of Open Access Commons-based data sharing in the overall data ecosystems. In particular, we focus on the need to protect open access commons resources in the European data-sharing ecosystem, which is not acknowledged in the original proposal. Precisely, in the original text, they might fall under the definition of “data sharing services” and “recognized data altruism organizations.” For a comprehensive European Data Strategy, it is important to correctly reference the important society-wide function performed by open access common resources.
