MyData Global chairman Antti “Jogi” Poikola, commenting on the awards and their impact on EU policy on data, noted: “The development of the Data Governance Act (DGA) shows a clear link to the MyData Operators white paper, which describes the operations and functions of what the EU terms as ‘data intermediaries’. Seeing how the white paper and the MyData Operator Awards have influenced legislation is a significant step in realising the principles in the MyData Declaration.”

iGrant.io co-founder and CEO, Lotta Lundin says: “This award is a testament to our commitment to a human centric approach to personal data usage, ensuring a win-win for individuals and for organisations who wish to monetise their data assets. It also puts us in a unique position to realise the role of a data intermediary within Europe and beyond”.
