State of Open Data Policy Summit
From improving disease response to enabling more equitable public transportation to promoting child well-being, responsible access to data has become essential. What policies are needed to facilitate and incentivize the opening of data for public interest purposes? What recent legal and policy developments are starting to shape the space of data collaboration? These and other questions focused on the state of open data policy will be addressed at the first “State of Open Data Policy Summit” hosted by the Open Data Policy Lab—a collaboration between The GovLab and Microsoft.
Attendees will have the opportunity to listen to and engage with senior leaders in government, civil society and business about the policies that can support more impactful re-use of data for the public good.
This discussion will focus on the past, present, and future of public and private sector policy, including the United States’ Evidence Act and EU’s Data Act. It will also seek to be an opportunity for officials such as US Senator Kirsten Gillibrand and Microsoft VP and Chief Data Scientist Juan Ferres to take stock of current approaches to data and ways we can incentivize meaningful re-use to realize “a third wave of open data.”
We invite you to attend this global, nonpartisan event to identify the ways we can better generate public good. A full recording of the event will be shared after the event concludes.
