Dawex Awarded ‘Technology Pioneer’ by the World Economic Forum
The World Economic Forum has stated that “innovation is critical to the future well-being of society and to driving economic growth”. For its 20th edition, the World Economic Forum has appointed CyberSec4Europe partner, Dawex, for its leadership, innovation and impact as a pioneer of the data economy. Dawex will participate in a two-year programme, joining the World Economic Forum Global Innovators Community, to contribute to the Data Policy platform, a work group leading the Forum’s approach to data policy and data governance. The aim is to help define and implement forward-looking, interoperable, and trustworthy data policies to fuel innovation and accelerate responsible use of data in the new globally integrated data economy.
The creation of a Data Policy platform by the World Economic Forum has marked a new milestone for data exchange. It confirms data exchanges are playing a central role in today’s global economy. Leveraging data exchange technology drives public and private organisations to seize data opportunities and open new business horizons, to make more informed decisions faster, and ultimately pave the way for new models of public-private partnerships at an international level.
By joining the Data Policy work group along with one Canadian, one Chinese and two American companies, Dawex will offer a European perspective in the discussions, bring forward new ideas and innovations, and contribute new solutions to overcome the current COVID-19 crisis and build future resiliency.
Being awarded Tech Pioneer by the World Economic Forum is an acknowledgement of the importance of Dawex’s mission to create the conditions for the smooth development of the data economy by facilitating the exchange of data between companies and organisations. Data exchange is an innovation enabler – this is shaping a promising future.
