We are glad to see how our research work contributes to EU law making!

Yesterday the European Parliament adopted the Regulation on the free flow of non-personal data, which aims to remove obstacles to the free movement of non-personal data and will enter into force by the end of 2018.

Our study on data location restrictions (SMART 2015/0054), conducted in collaboration with time.lex and tech4i2, provided evidence on the scope and magnitude of legal and non-legal barriers in Member States practices which hinder the free flow of non-personal data within the European Union in order to contribute to the sustainable development of a Digital Single Market. It provided also evidence about the costs of these barriers for private and public sector.
