Webinar for data providers: Legal openness

Event date:
Published on: 25/10/2022

In order to unleash the full potential of data, it needs to be legally open. This means it must be placed in the public domain or under liberal terms of use with minimal restrictions. Organisations and governments use open data licenses to explain the conditions under which their data can be used. Data owners need to take decisions regarding legal openness of their data when making it available to the public.

The next webinar in the series for data providers will take place on Friday, 18 November, at 10.00-11.30 CET. It aims to explain what openness entails from a legal perspective, and how it can be achieved optimally. We will explain how to identify the pieces of information that can be reused according to licensing and data protection rules, and learning on best practices from the public sector.

The webinar will cover both the national and EU legal perspective, inviting two experts in this field:

  • Hans Graux, lawyer at the law firm TimeLex
  • Jean Paul Triaille, legal officer at the Intellectual Property Service of the European Commission

This webinar is focused on data providers who may be interested in learning more about the legal aspect of data publishing. It is also open for anyone interested in the topics of open data and legal openness.
