The Data Sovereignty Now Movement
Don’t worry if you missed the 15 October webinar about ‘Data Sovereignty Now: unleashing the benefits of data in line with European values. You can watch the recorded version of the webinar via this link.
Drawing on the many years of experience within our network of like-minded organisations, we have developed our own, practical version of how European regulatory intervention can state the future of the digital economy and reduce our dependence on the platforms run by the increasingly dominant international Big Tech giants.
We believe that it is possible to create more room for innovation, fair competition and privacy without compromising on the availability and quality of interconnected services and staying true to the European Values. Structured and mandated data sovereignty forms the basis for this approach.
We regard data sovereignty as functionally extending the rights that are already defined in the GDPR and as building upon European legislation such as eIDAS and PSD2.
Recorded Thursday 15 October 2020, featuring: Arief Hühn, researcher atFreedomLab, Eric Pol, founder of A New Governance and Katryna Dow, CEO & Founder of Meeco.
Panel discussion featured the following experts: Eric Pol, Katryna Dow, Jaana Sinipuro (project director at Sitra), Gerard van der Hoeven (director of the iSHARE Foundation) and Douwe Lycklama (founder of INNOPAY).

Wednesday 21 October 2020 - 12:40-13:00 CET
Earlier in 2020, the European Union published “A European Strategy for Data” outlining its vision for a connected single digital market where the benefits of the digital economy could enhance the lives of its citizens, residents and trade partners.
However, we now find ourselves at a very real crossroad. A post-pandemic world will be a new type of normal. Amidst the tragic loss of lives there have been breakthroughs in science, new ways of working along with embracing new digital tools.
We are at the beginning of a new design and architectural phase where just because technology can, doesn’t mean it should. Personal data linked to identity, fuelled by AI sits at the centre of these decisions.
Enabling citizens, students, patients, passengers and consumers to more equitably join the value chains fuelled by data will ultimately lead to greater trust and personalisation, resulting in a more prosperous society. However, this will require new commercial models, enforceable regulation and the digital tools to transform our connected society.
This session will focus on the implementation of real-world case studies including standards, commercial models and technology choices. Keynote: Katryna Dow, Meeco Founder & CEO
KuppingerCole Customer Technology 2020
Wednesday 21 October 2020 - 13:00-13:40 CET
During the EURODIG Conference 2018, EC Commissioner Mariya Gabriel addressed the audience with a video message describing her (and the EU’s)vision of a Human-Centric Internet.
Most if not all of what Mariya described, has been the mission of Meeco’s Founder Katryna Dow since many years, unresting, untiringly, earnestly and with a clear vision working making this a reality.
So, get your coffee now and take this unique opportunity to discuss with Katryna about current trends and the future of what we used to call “Life Management Platforms”.

Data Sovereignty Now: unleashing the benefits of data in line with European values
Webinar: Thursday 22 October 2020 - 14:15:15 CET
On behalf of ourselves and our partners, we are pleased to invite you to our webinar debate on ‘Data Sovereignty Now: unleashing the benefits of data in line with European values’. The webinar is especially interesting for politicians and their staff in Europe.It is the aim of the European Commission and local governments to unleash the full benefits of data usage for everyone in Europe in line with European values. Data sovereignty holds the key to achieving that.
It is a worthy ambition, but one that also raises a number of questions, such as what exactly is data sovereignty, how does it support European values, and how can organisations in the public/private sector help to accomplish this ambition?
These questions will be addressed in the webinar on 22 October.
Featuring: Arief Hühn, researcher atFreedomLab, Eric Pol, founder of A New Governance and Katryna Dow, CEO & Founder of Meeco.
Followed by panel discussion featuring the following experts: Eric Pol, Katryna Dow, Jaana Sinipuro (project director at Sitra), Gerard van der Hoeven (director of the iSHARE Foundation) and Douwe Lycklama (founder of INNOPAY).
We hope you enjoy this week of events, or catch-up anytime!
Thank you, Team Meeco :)
