During the lifetime of the EuDEco project several interesting reports, analyses and other results were elaborated and made available to any interested parties. This page has been created to guide you via our main outcomes/results.

The model of the European data economy was developed in 3 iterations starting from the first integration. The first, so-called heuristic model was revised and an intermediary refined model was published in 2016. The final model was released in August 2017. Each version of the model was created based on the analysis of legal, technological and socio-economic aspects and on experiences gained via case studies on existing pilots for data reuse.

The process of the model refinement was supported by two expert groups that were established by EuDEco at the beginning of the project, namely

  • The Advisory Board is a smaller group of internationally renowned experts who could help EuDEco to implement its activities in the right direction as well as to ensure the exploitation of the EuDEco results.
  • The User Expert Group is a larger group of professionals who joined the EuDEco team as external professionals and contributed to the development and refinement of the model by their expertise and pilot cases which EuDEco could utilise to validate the model developed.

Main results of EuDEco

In order to ensure that the framework conditions of the model are also amended as necessary EuDEco defined recommendations for policy makers (both EU and national level) as well as for the representatives of the industry to foster the potentials of data reuse in Europe. The recommendations aim at promoting data reuse and laying the ground for a self-sustaining data economy in Europe. In order to define well-based recommendations legal, socio-economic and technological requirements and barriers were analysed, which included making considerations as to how they can be met and resolved, respectively. The observatory of the European data economy helps to track the development of data reuse and its impact in Europe with the help of composed indices.
