Human-Centric Companies and Cities (H3C)
MyData Global’s Human-Centric Companies and Cities (H3C) project helps companies and cities use personal data to make cities smarter.
MyData Global is providing free training and networking opportunities for cities and data-driven companies. This will build capacity and help companies and cities develop services that use personal data ethically.
What is all about
The project is intended for companies that want to achieve a competitive edge by exploring how public-private partnerships can successfully use personal data to make cities smarter.
You will learn about business models, compliance with complex regulatory regimes, standards, and governance mechanisms. You will be connected with EU funding opportunities, and you will learn how to build successful partnerships with companies and cities. After the training, your company will be well-positioned to capitalise on the growing smart city and human-centric personal data trend in Finland and abroad.

Rulebook learning circle
The OmaData rulebook allows data to be shared more freely, transparently and safely, between people, cities and businesses. The learning circle describes this in practice – and how can companies get started to utilise data from various sources (incl. cities and other businesses).
Read also the blog post Rulebook overcomes the lack of trust in data sharing.
Who’s it for? Experts at companies and cities (e.g. Data Protection Officers or Data management professionals), who want to make sure the legal frameworks for using data are in place and efficient.
Time commitment: Approximately 4 x 2 hour sessions and some exercises (0-2 hours) in-between sessions to make learning applicable in own organisation
Timeline: Nov 2021 – Feb 2022
Capacity: 15 people / 6 organisations
Interoperability standards learning circle
The Minimal Interoperability Mechanisms (or MIMs), are a set of practical technical capabilities based on open technical specifications that allow cities and communities to replicate and scale solutions globally. MIMs provide the technical foundation for procurement and deployment of urban data platforms and end-to-end solutions in cities & communities worldwide. The Open and Agile Smart Cities (OASC) network has recently developed, with the lead of the City of Helsinki, MIM4, a standard specifically on personal data in the cities.
The learning circle will get into the details of the MIM4, with the goal that companies and cities build solutions that are interoperable and scalable – a solution based on MIM4 and in use in Helsinki, would be more easily replicated in other cities that adopt MIM4.
Time commitment: 4 x 3-hour sessions and some exercises (0-2 hours)
Timeline: Oct – Nov 2022
Capacity: 15 people / 6 organisations

Horizon Europe.
Who’s it for? Companies, cities and other organisations seeking funding for R&D and other activities, interested to collaborate with their counterparts from the other European countries to develop their capacities for fair and sustainable use of personal data.
Time commitment: 1-2 hours a month
Timeline: January – June 2022
