The State of Data Innovation in the EU

by Nick Wallace

As a host of new digital technologies have emerged over the last decade, data has become a key driver of economic growth, social progress and innovation.  But what is the true state of data innovation in the EU, and how do European national economies compare in their use of and support for data?

A forthcoming report by the Center for Data Innovation ranks the EU’s 28 member states by how well they perform in data innovation, using a variety of indicators. The around 30 indicators include metrics on open data policies, digital skills, and the use of data-driven technologies in industry.

Join the Center for Data Innovation for a presentation of the report’s findings, and a discussion with leading experts and policymakers about the factors behind the leading countries’ success, and how all European countries can build a thriving data economy.
