On 17 July 2017 the Digital Single Market Conference on the free movement of data was hosted in Tallinn, under the Estonian Presidency of the Council which started on 1 July this year. In the broader context of the Digital Single Market, the conference set the free movement of data across Europe as its focus. The vision of a free movement of data beyond Member States' borders represents a comprehensive and at the same time visionary framework for publishing, accessing and re-using data between public administrations, as well as between public and private sector stakeholders.
The Estonian Presidency set out as one of its main priorities to actively contribute to completing the Digital Single Market (DSM). The DSM Conference in Tallinn was meant as a first step in this direction. With a full day of panels, presentations and insightful speeches, the DSM 2017 Conference gave important impulses towards further promoting the vision of a free flow of data across Europe - a vision that will shape the future of the European Union and strengthen its attractiveness in the world, as a top location to live and invest in.
