Our research focuses on data and its role for competition and innovation in digital markets. In particular, we analyse how access to data should be designed considering technical, economic and regulatory aspects.
The research group offers lectures, seminars and theses on current topics of the data economy. Our teaching apporach integrates current research insignts and interdisciplinary perspectives.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic the members of the research group Data Policies can only be contacted by e-mail until further notice. Consultation hours take place - as usual after registration - via video conference.
The research group Data Policies is funded by the Bavarian State Ministry of Science and the Arts. Within the project “Data Neutrality & Open Access: Coherent Economic Policies for the Digital Economy” the research group, headed by Dr. Daniel Schnurr, investigates the role of data gatekeepers and the design of data access in digital markets. Since 2020 the research group is coordinated by the Bavarian Research Institute for Digital Transformation (bidt).
