Research Group Data Policies

The research group Data Policies is funded by the Bavarian State Ministry of Education, Science and the Arts in the framework of the Centre Digitisation.Bavaria (ZD.B). In the project “Data Neutrality & Open Access: Coherent Economic Policies for the Digital Economy” the research group headed by Dr. Daniel Schnurr aims at investigating the crucial role of access to data in digital markets.

The goal of the research group “Data Neutrality & Open Access” is to inform the quest for a new coherent economic policy framework for the digital economy by taking an interdisciplinary research approach between economics, information systems research and law. In particular, the research project deals with the research question of how to design rules and institutions that govern the access to data and especially the access to personal data. As data gatekeepers in digital markets may exploit their dominant position and endanger consumers’ control over their own personal data, the research project investigates the economic impact of direct regulatory intervention policies in combination with policies directed to empower users. Next to industrial organization and game-theoretic models, alternative policy proposals are evaluated by a mixture of experimental and computational simulation research methods.
