Nathalie de Quatrebarbes was honored by the international association and appointed co-chair of the IT & Software. Yann Dietrich, Head of IP at Atos and Bertrand Duflos, partner at Beau de Loménie, have been appointed co-president alongside her.
Nathalie de Quatrebarbes participated this Tuesday, June 28 in the conference “Access to data, European regulatory framework and case study on the agricultural sector” organized by the IT&S committee of LES France – Licensing Executives Society, co-chaired by Yann Dietrich and Antoine Dupont.
She led the theme dedicated to the European data strategy.
Nathalie de Quatrebarbes intervened alongside Fabrice TOCCO, Co-CEO of Dawex, Sébastien PICARDAT, CEO of Agdatahub and Laurent DUVEAUX, in charge of information systems for France Génétique Elevage.
The European strategy on the data economy is based on several texts of important European regulations, in particular the Data Governance Act (DGA) and the Data Act (DA), the proposal of which was published in February 2022. Access to data, the volume of which is growing very rapidly, in particular via the IoT, imposes rights and duties for the various actors in the Data Value Chain (DVC). During this seminar, a summary of the DGA and DA regulations will be presented in order to understand the essential points. The agricultural sector has been implementing means for several years to facilitate the exchange of data between the many types of actors in this sector. The case of the agricultural ecosystem will therefore be discussed in the light of these lessons and the perspectives linked in particular to European regulations.
Program Important developments in the various regulatory frameworks in the field of AI and data access will be discussed in order to give an overview of the current changing context, in particular with regard to compliance with competition rules and intellectual property rights. In order to overcome this relatively “unclear” context, practical contractual approaches will be presented as well as, during the round table, the feedback from industrialists.
