Announcing New Global, Nonpartisan Summit on State of Open Data Policy

From improving disease response to enabling more equitable public transportation to promoting child well-being, responsible access to data has become essential. But 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.

On 17 May 2022 at 11:00 AM — 2:00 PM ET, attendees at the State of Open Data Policy Summit 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 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. Registration is free and open to all through EventBrite. While a full recording of the event will be shared after the event concludes, we encourage you to spread the word on this summit to ensure a robust and meaningful conversation on open data policy.

We hope to see you there.
