A paper from the TU Delft team, entitled “Preparing Future Business Data Sharing via a Meta-Platform for Data Marketplaces: Exploring Antecedents and Consequences of Data Sovereignty” has been accepted for publication in the proceedings of the 35th Bled eConference. In addition, Antragama from the TU Delft team will also give a presentation at this conference (held on June 26 – June 29, 2022 in Bled, Slovenia).
The paper aims to explore the antecedents and consequences of data sovereignty concerns in a federated data market. Based on interviews with fifteen potential data providers and five data marketplace experts, we identify data sovereignty antecedents, such as (potentially) less trustworthy data marketplace participants, unclear use cases, and data provenance difficulties. Data sovereignty concerns have many consequences, including knowledge spillovers to competitors and reputational damage (See Figure 1 for conceptualization). This study is among the first that empirically develops a pre-conceptualization for data sovereignty in this novel context, thus laying the groundwork for designing future federated data market solutions.
This research is relevant to TRUSTS because of its vision to be a federator of data markets to facilitate sovereign data sharing. More importantly, the findings align with the TRUSTS’ existing works (e.g., smart contracts) to tackle specific antecedents of data sovereignty (e.g., data ownership and provenance).
