Our tenth article of the series on “Big Data & Issues & Opportunities” (https://2bird.ly/2XSPMF0) addresses various legal issues and opportunities that one may encounter when using open data for big data technologies, with particular illustrations from the transport sector. This article notably examines both legislative and non-legislative measures adopted and proposed by the EU institutions to encourage the uptake of open data.
