The world’s most valuable resource is no longer oil, it is data. In the Information Age, data powers growth and change, increasing quality of life and paving the way for fairer and more efficient societies. But the true promise of the Data Economy remains largely unfulfilled because we still lack the technology – and agreement –  to allow for standard, secure and efficient data exchange. There’s no real market place yet – and the means of production in the hands of a few rather suggests a feudal hierarchy than a modern economy. Will this change? Can this change? Different experts and players in this field will present their aspects on the topic.
