Starting points

During its Presidency of the Council of the EU in 2019, Finland emphasized the need to develop the copyright infrastructure, ie the practices concerning the submission of data on works and authors, incl. identifiers, tags, standards and data sharing formats. Finland also aims to support the development of a human centered, balanced and thriving European data economy. As part of this work, the growth and competitiveness of the creative industries were also taken into account, e.g. At the Data Economy Conference in Helsinki on November 25-26, 2019. The data principles promoting the sharing and use of data were developed together with the assistance of the industries and Sitra (https://dataprinciples2019.fi/).
