In particular, the Expert Group shall:

  1. evaluate the principles, collaboration modes and technical means outlined in the Guidance on private sector data sharing and endorse a framework for B2G data- sharing;
  2. define and encourage B2G collaborations to test the guidance and facilitate the exchange of good practices amongst members and with the Commission;
