- Establishing clear policies and procedures for sharing and using data and ensuring that all actors understand and comply with them.
- Ensuring that all stakeholders have access to the same information and resources and that decision-making is transparent.
- Train and educate all stakeholders on best practices for data management and privacy.
- Implementing strong security measures to protect data from unauthorized access or breaches.
- Building a culture of trust and collaboration where all stakeholders are encouraged to work together and share information.
- A neutral third party to monitor and possibly regulate the ecosystem to ensure fairness and trust (“data space authority”)
- clear data governance processes with clear roles and responsibilities for data management and use, and regular monitoring and oversight.
