On 18th and 19th of October 2021, the project team of the 'ALI-ELI Principles for a Data Economy' organised the Principles for a Data Economy Conference 2021, which was held online. On this occasion, the joint ALI-ELI project ‘Principles for a Data Economy – Data Rights and Transactions’ were presented and discussed with international institutions, experts and stakeholders. The aim of the ALI-ELI Principles is to inspire development of the law by courts and legislators worldwide and to provide guidance to all stakeholders in the data economy.

The programme consisted of five main sessions, during which each Part of the ALI-ELI Principles (on general provisions, data contracts, data rights, third-party aspects of data transactions, and multi-state issues) were presented. Following a short presentation delivered by the Project Reporters, each Part of the Principles was discussed by a panel of experts. On the second day of the conference, the project team also organised a discussion with stakeholders, to collect ideas from the perspective of businesses as well as consumers.
