Human-centric companies and cities


The aim of the consultations is to support the companies interested in developing their capacities in the area of human-centric personal data management and sharing, in relation to business development, collaboration and internationalisation.

Those consultations will be provided in two ways:

  1. Peer consultations: between the organisations engaged in the MyData local and global ecosystem. 
    • They will be organised on the ongoing basis, according to the interest and connected with the training and networking events 
  2. Professional consultations, mainly on the internationalisation
    • They will be organised in two sets, in January and April 2022 and will accommodate approximately 10 companies.
