BSA | The Software Alliance (BSA) welcomes the opportunity to provide feedback in response to the Inception Impact Assessment on a Legislative framework for the governance of common European Data Spaces. BSA is the leading advocate for the global software industry. Our members are at the forefront of software enabled innovation that is fueling global economic growth by helping enterprises in every sector of the economy operate more efficiently. As global leaders in the development of data driven products and services, BSA members have unique insights into how European Data Spaces could encourage the uptake of AI tools, data analytics and how they could further help the EU to become a leading role model for a society empowered by data to make better decisions in business and the public sector.
BSA’s new policy agenda “Open Data: Bridging the Data Divide” offers a path forward to facilitate greater sharing, collaboration, and experimentation with data resources while protecting privacy and promoting trust.
