Sandboxes for data
The fast pace of technological change and increasing reliance on new technologies have transformed societies and the way we create, use, consume and share data. At the same time, this unprecedented leap and the disruptive nature of technological developments have challenged existing institutional and regulatory arrangements.
To advance in implementing concrete future-proof solutions to accommodate rapid and ongoing evolutions regarding cross-border data flows, there is an urgent need to understand how agile models such as regulatory models could be used as inspiration to enhance cross-border and cross-sectoral coordination.
To kick-start this effort the Datasphere Initiative has produced a report examining the model of regulatory sandboxes, what they stand for, and how they could offer workable solutions for cross-border data flows.
