conference programme

Intereconomics and the German Institute for Economics invite you to the conference "Data-Driven Economy: Challenges and Opportunities"

The transformation of data into an independent asset poses new challenges for companies, regulators and policymakers. We examine the status-quo of data-driven business models and the requirements shaping the process. On the business side, new tools are needed to utilise data as an asset with regard to its quantity and diversity. Regulators and policymakers will have to refine an often inefficient legal and regulatory framework to guide this transformation towards the general benefit.

Studies and conclusions will be available in the Intereconomics issue No.4 of 2019.
