Legislative measures to increase data availability - Helpful or not?
Over the last 1.5 years we have seen various legislative initiatives that aim to increase the availability of data by forcing various groups of entities (e.g., industry, hospitals, municipalities) to share their data. This happens both on the EU (e.g., Data Act, European Health Data Space Regulation) as well as on the national (German) level (e.g., Forschungsdatengesetz, Gesundheitsdatennutzungsgesetz). Are such measures really helpful for Open Science? What are the experiences in your community?
The session does *not* aim to be a detailed introduction into the mentioned legislative acts (which are assumed to be known - at least partially), but a discussion about their impact on the affected parties.
