Governance as a game changer

aNewGovernance international association brings together public bodies, associations, academics, start-ups, and corporates from all over the world. This initiative is accompanying the shift to a fair data economy, especially in the context of the GDPR and of the European Data Strategy with the development of Data Spaces (health, skills, mobility, finance, agriculture, energy, administration, green deal). The association's aim is to help build those Sectoral Data Spaces in their Governance and Personal Data dimensions, as well as the Personal Cross-Sectoral Data Space. Even though we kickstarted our work in Europe, we put a great emphasis on our international dimension: we believe we are contributing to building a new paradigm that should be shared beyond the European borders. The objective is to encourage human-centric fair use of data (primary, secondary…), moving away from both All-State and Platform-centric (Winner takes all) models.

Our vision is a global human-centric personal data network in which all organizations take part and where data can easily flow from one organization to the other under the person's complete control and transparency. Discover our concrete data circulation projects.

Our area of interest is first and foremost Data Sharing (crossborder, cross-sectoral) with a special focus on Personal Data Portability, governance, legal standards (consent, liability), certification, technical infrastructure, and processes.

One ultimate goal for the ecosystem should be to create a governance body as a Public-Private Partnership (PPP) for Personal Data Sharing: a global standard and governance elaborated by multiple parties from across the world, creating new societal and economic value and generating growth globally, not just for a few dominant players. Above all, we should aim for and build a Governance framework that would ensure fair use of data and strict respect of legislations, regulations, and guidelines, in order to ensure fair and balanced relationships between individuals and organizations as well as between organizations, based on effective and documented trust.
