Forum on Market Mechanisms in Data Economy

The economic importance of data is increasing as user-driven services and business processes being developed require information and mobility. The goals of the Forum are to make the economic activities based on data utilization more visible and to identify prerequisites for a data-based business. The event features high-level Finnish business and policy decision makers.

The Forum provides a discussion platform on the data processing from the point of view of the Finnish business developments, followed by an extension to platforms and networks in the global economy, as well as on applications to everyday business operations of data peers. The participants of the Forum also have an opportunity to propose topics and issues to be discussed at any future events.

Leena Ilmola-Sheppard, Senior Research Scholar at the Advanced Systems Analysis program will give a talk on "Global Data Economy - Opportunities and Threats" presenting the results of the study (in collaboration with Pekka Neittaanmäki, Dean at University of Jyväskylä) on the impact of digitalization on the public finances.
