iRights.Lab Pub­lish­es Third Data Gov­er­nance Report

With­in the frame­work of the mFUND research ini­tia­tive of the Fed­er­al Min­istry of Trans­port and Dig­i­tal Infra­struc­ture (BMVI) and in the course of the asso­ci­at­ed accom­pa­ny­ing research, iRights.Lab is work­ing on data gov­er­nance in the mobil­i­ty sec­tor. Our work focus­es on novel self gov­er­nance struc­tures of data-dri­ven inno­va­tions for com­pa­nies and pub­lic author­i­ties. The third Data Gov­er­nance Report has now been pub­lished.

The con­tent of the third report focus­es on the topic of data qual­i­ty. It pro­vides the results of the cur­rent online sur­vey among the mFUND projects. The sur­vey shows that ensur­ing data qual­i­ty is an often under­es­ti­mat­ed chal­lenge for com­pa­nies, pub­lic author­i­ties, asso­ci­a­tions and other pri­vate and pub­lic insti­tu­tions.

In order to shed more light on the con­tent focus, we dis­cuss pos­si­ble strate­gies for more data qual­i­ty in a detailed inter­view with data gov­er­nance expert Marco Geuer. Geuer makes it unmis­tak­ably clear: “With­out data qual­i­ty man­age­ment there is no data gov­er­nance”. The report also pro­vides insight into key cri­te­ria for eval­u­at­ing data qual­i­ty.

The Data Gov­er­nance Report is pub­lished as part of the mFUND accom­pa­ny­ing research of iRights.Lab. Since 2016, the Fed­er­al Min­istry of Trans­port and Dig­i­tal Infra­struc­ture (BMVI) has been fund­ing research and devel­op­ment projects on dig­i­tal data-based appli­ca­tions for the field of mobil­i­ty 4.0. By devel­op­ing a self gov­er­nance con­cept, we want to enable pub­lic author­i­ties and com­pa­nies to set up their own rules and struc­tures for respon­si­ble han­dling of the data they man­age and use.
