EuChemS has recently answered to the European Commission’s roadmap on the Data Act & amended rules on the legal protection of databases, which aims to foster business-to-government and B2B sharing, hence strengthening the implementation of Open Access and Open Science.
In its answer, EuChemS welcomed the European Commission’s initiative as part its legislative pathway towards a European Single Data Market and stressed the necessity for the Data Act to comply with the current EU IPR policies in place such as GDPR and ePrivacy Dir. 2002/58/EC while underlining the related overlapping risks.
EuChemS is currently preparing its response to the public consultation of the Commission. In the meantime, you are invited to read more here about the EuChemS’ answer to the roadmap on the ‘Data Act’.
