Why B2B Data Sharing is Important for the Manufacturing Sector

07 February 2022

The upcoming Data Act aims at facilitating data access and data use in B2B and B2G relationships, while reviewing the rules on the legal protection of databases. Moreover, to facilitate data sharing across the EU and between sectors, the draft Regulation aims to strengthen the mechanisms that increase data availability and foster trust in intermediaries.

In order to guarantee SME’s uptake of data economy opportunities, CECIMO believes that the following points of reflection need to be considered as fundamental when it comes to promoting data-sharing and boosting the use of data applications in industrial plants:

  1. Foster market growth
  2. Accelerate innovation through common EU standards
  3. Develop the industry ecosystem
  4. New technologies and industrial data
