MyData Thematic Groups

MyData Thematic Groups, together with the Local hubs are the locus of MyData Global’s activity.

MyData Groups are active teams of people and organisation, who have come together to promote MyData purpose and mission from the perspective of a specific theme or a domain.

Active Groups meet the requirements set by the Internal regulations.

Read more about MyData’s mission from MyData Global’s bylaws and the MyData Declaration.
