The EC B2B Data Sharing and Cloud Computing expert group will play a key role in the Commission’s efforts for the development of a data economy, and support for the EU data strategy. It aims to ensure that all companies, including SMEs, are able to access the data sharing opportunities they need to develop their full potential, even when they lack resources or expertise to develop or review the specific contracts.
The group will work to develop contract terms that businesses can use in their B2B data sharing contracts, as well as standard contractual clauses for cloud computing contracts.
“The development of the Data Economy is essential for Europe. The Data Act will raise the bar. I am proud to have been selected as one of the 20 experts in this group, and will devote my time and energy to help in this mission,” says Claude.
Each expert will serve a 2-year term.
Claude’s expertise and experiences as CIO and later CEO of Portima (a cooperative of 9 insurance companies and 3000 insurance brokers) give him in-depth practical knowledge of the issues involved. But he also can call on the insight of his many contacts within Beltug – CIOs and digital technology leaders.
“This is an exciting opportunity to make a real difference for Europe’s business users, but also our overall economy. It will be a challenging task, but I know I can rely on Beltug’s members to provide me with interesting use cases, that will enable me to explain the business user’s viewpoint within the expert group.”
