MyData 2019 Conference

MyData 2019 Conference

Finland leads the way to fair data economy - examples of human-centric approaches to personal data will be presented at the MyData conference in Helsinki in September.

Sitra is the main partner of the MyData 2019 Conference and the theme of the event “Rebuilding trust – for human-centered data economy” resonates  with the core values of our project on fair data economy.

The discussion on more transparent, trustworthy and actionable solutions for a just, sustainable and prosperous digital society will be fueled in the event. Grammy -winning musician Imogen Heap, who founded the Mycelia service to restore artists’ rights to their own data, will give the opening speech. Sitra is financing the technical finalisation of the service.

We welcome participants especially from the business sector to come and find out about new services and emerging business models. Our programme will be highly focused on networking and bringing investors and start-ups together.

All the main stage sessions will be livestreamed.
