Promoting cross-border data-exchange between authorities
The secure cross-border exchange of both personal and other data is essential for the mobility of citizens and business transactions. To achieve this, the project “Achieving the World’s Smoothest Cross-Border Mobility and Daily Life through Digitalisation” will create a shared model and best practices for improving the effectiveness of cross-border data-exchange.
The cross-border data exchange project is administered by the Finnish Digital and Population Data Services Agency and is part of Finland’s Programme for the Presidency of the Nordic Council of Ministers Presidency in 2021. The project has three workpackages within it, each looking at a different aspect of the overall thematic topic of cross-border data exchange.
At the 2023 CBDS seminar, the Handbook of cross-border data exchange was presented. The handbook is a collection of the lessons learned in cross-border data exchange in the fields of studying and using healthservices in another Nordic and Baltic country, and in the use of Nordic and Baltic legal databases. The aim is to provide the reader with insights and ideas for future development by pinpointing identified networks, interesting initiatives, and potential funding mechanisms, as well as highlighting case examples that could be utilised in the development of cross-border collaboration.
The handbook can be found here.
