The Datasphere Initiative and the Centre for IT & IP Law (CiTiP) at KU Leuven University co-hosted a webinar on July 6, 2023, titled ‘Responsibly unlocking the value of data in Europe : Impact on emerging technology and the global majority’
The event provided a platform for policymakers, businesses, civil society, and academia to discuss the European data strategy, its norms, and implications for emerging technology such as Artificial Intelligence and data governance practices in the global majority.
Panelists discussed the questions still left open, and upcoming challenges for Europe to responsibly unlock the value of data for all.
CSEA’s Director of Research, Dr Adedeji Adeniran joined the panel session to discuss how European (and global) data governance efforts have developed in a fragmented and siloed manner and the impact this is having on data governance approaches in the global majority and the ability to deal with emerging technology such as Artificial Intelligence.
This blog shares some key takeaways and outlines recommendations for stakeholders.
