EU Data Spaces for more cooperation
The European Commission’s plan to create common European data spaces, including in the mobility sector, has the potential to foster more cooperation between the public and private mobility sectors. A common EU Mobility Data Space would serve as a pool of jointly agreed principles and standards, in which data-owners and potential buyers would freely negotiate terms and eventually conclude a contract. Move EU supports this model and the European Commission’s plans, and welcomes the free market principles within a regulated procedure.
To ensure a broad adoption of such initiative, we believe that the participation in common European data spaces should remain voluntary, non-discriminating and based on the principle of proportionality (“need to access” approach). Any governance framework for data access should remain technology-neutral, and refrain from favoring one particular storage or access architecture.
