Recruitment for the data monetisation task force

Apply to join the task force for taking a stance on data monetisation!

Applications deadline: 10 Nov 2021
Compensation available: 800 eur in total

MyData’s identity (who we are and what we want) is described in the MyData Declaration, but there are still topics that we as a community (and more specifically the MyData Global organisation) have not yet properly discussed and agreed on. 

One of these topics is personal data monetisation. Should individuals own their personal data? Should they be able to monetise it? What is the relationship between these two questions and does a specific position on one necessarily imply or entail a definite position on the other?

The MyData community members are often asked what is the position of MyData Global regarding personal data monetisation. As MyData Global is one of the thought leaders in the domain, we should have not just an opinion but a well-founded and justified position of the organisation, so that all its parties can rely on this in the wider discussion with other stakeholders. Without a clear position on this, we risk losing credibility, diminishing our influence and having internal fragmentation.

This is why MyData Global is forming a dedicated task force to run the deliberation process. The Board has also defined the terms of reference for the task force.

The task force

The task force will consist of three members:

  • Staff representative (Sille Sepp)
  • Leadership (Board or Steering Committee) representative
  • Community member


  • Timeline: November 2021 – May 2022
  • Time commitment: 5-15 h/month
  • Compensation: 800 eur in total (incl any taxation)

The application form is now closed and we will contact all the applicants shortly!
If you’re interested to engage with the community on this topic, please join the #data-monetisation Slack channel and participate in the workshop session on 17 Nov!
