Session host: Lea Hemetsberger
Goal: The session will encourage a debate about the role of cities sharing personal data. Insights from the roundtable will enrich the OASC working group on Personal Data Management. A follow-up will take place at CITYxCITY Festival on 13-14 Jan 2021.
Description: Managing personal data can improve public services and enable a seamless experience for citizens. But for this to happen, several challenges need to be resolved. This roundtable will address the following:
– How can public authorities move from fear of sharing data to managing data with confidence?
– How can public authorities enable citizens to be in charge of their data?
– How can smaller communities keep up?
– How can minimal technical specifications facilitate sharing data based on MyData principles?
