Tivian Survey Questionnaire

Welcome to the survey on trade secrets and shared data!

The following questionnaire enquires into the practices of sharing confidential and commercially valuable data and trade secret / IP protection for this data in your line of business. The information will help the European Commission, who has contracted out this survey, to reflect on policy measures that intend to improve data sharing practices while protecting the economic interests of European firms.

Please note: The questionnaire does not enquire into any specific trade secrets of your company or organisation. All responses will be treated confidentially and published only in aggregate anonymised form, in line with GDPR requirements. The study team hereby acts as data processor for the European Commission (who is the data controller).

We estimate that you will need 15-20 minutes to complete the questionnaire, which consists of five parts.

Should you have any questions, please contact the project leader Dr. Alfred Radauer from the IMC University of Applied Sciences, Krems (alfred.radauer@fh-krems.ac.at, +43 2732 802 198) or the project officer at the European Commission, Daniel Ugarte (jose-daniel.ugarte-otero@ec.europa.eu) anytime.
