Lydian Data Series

Share this page

The European data strategy aims to make the EU a leader in a data-driven society. Creating a single market for data will allow it to flow freely within the EU and across sectors for the benefit of businesses, researchers and public administrations.

The Lydian Data Series is a series of short movies aimed at introducing the main EU legal instruments in the area of data regulation. Both current and upcoming (draft) regulation is discussed. The series is not limited to personal data.
