Luukas also chairs the Council of Europe’s Committee on the ethical and human rights dimensions of AI and algorithmic processing of data.

The Lisbon Council and the Estonian government collaborated to produce a vision on how Europe could move forward in its political and regulatory discussions on the data economy. As a result of this, discussions on data ownership and reuse have been launched in a number of policy areas, including transport, e-government and energy.
