The Data Spaces Symposium event, focused on accelerating the implementation of data spaces in Europe and beyond, is being held from March 21 to March 23 in The Hague (The Netherlands). Professor of Constitutional Law at the Universitat de València and director of the Chair of Privacy and Digital Transformation Ricard Martínez Martínez participates in lectures on the ethical perspective of data spaces and their feasibility, as well as use cases from business, legal, operational and technical perspectives.

The European data strategy identifies data spaces as a key element on the road to a fair data economy. To address these issues, the conferences will feature keynotes and high-level plenary sessions, where the organization invites to network and exchange ideas.

The opening day of the event, March 21, focuses on the economic, social and environmental implications that data spaces can and will have. Professor Ricard Martínez will speak on Data spaces - what is good, what is feasible? An ethical perspective at 4:20 pm.

The day of March 22 will be full of presentations dedicated to success and impact cases, as well as the different perspectives of data spaces, such as the business, legal, technical and organizational vision. In this regard, Ricard Martínez will participate in the Data Spaces Support Centre Theatre session at 2 pm along with three other specialists to discuss case studies from four perspectives of data spaces: business, legal, operational and technical.

The following morning, on the 23rd, the Data Space Deep-Dive Day will take place, with numerous presentations and lectures.

Data Spaces Symposium is organized by the Center of Excellence for Data Sharing and Cloud (TNO), the International Data Spaces Association, the Core Data Infrastructure Network and the Data Spaces Support Center, powered by the Data Spaces Business Alliance and co-organized with EUHubs4Data and MyData Global.
