An Open, Trusted and Fair Market for Data Sharing

Only a fraction of data is shared, mostly due to uncertainty about safety, privacy, and property rights. Are you as motivated as us to change this? You can participate in a competition to help build an open market for data exchange and win €750,000.

Enter the competition and win up to €750,000 in co-financing for your idea for an open, trusted and fair market for data sharing. A market that is scalable and broadly applicable and that allows parties in the Amsterdam area to work on a smart, green and healthy region.

Amsterdam Data Exchange (or AMdEX) is a perfect example of an initiative that aims to develop data exchange by collaborating with both public and private partners. Other examples are IShare & Data Logistics 4 Logistics Data, Personal Health Train, International Data Spaces and IOTA.

For more information, you can visit the Amsterdam Economic Board website. If you are an organization that is familiar with digital technology and you know how to use your knowledge for a smart, green and healthy region, then feel free to register for the competition right away via this link. Deadline for registration is Tuesday 4 June before 10:00 am.
