Well, ‘powered by MeCast’ is just part of it. The entire event is actually a little bigger. We’ve written about this before, but to recap quickly, MyData 2016 is a three-day conference, starting on the 31st of August, hosted in the beautiful Finnish capital, Helsinki. The conference brings together thought leaders, entrepreneurs, academics, policy makers and executives. The thing bringing them together is that they’re all focused on developing the ecosystem and advancing collaborative approaches to human centric personal data products, services and frameworks.In collaboration and in support of our ongoing partnership, Meeco is proud to announce the launch of MyData 2016 powered by MeCast.
