Data Collaboratives: Leveraging Private Data for Public Good

Stefaan G. Verhulst, Andrew Young, Michelle Winowatan Andrew J. Zahuranec, : 2019

This paper analyses the current practice of “data collaboratives,” an emerging form of collaboration in which a private-sector entity’s data is leveraged in partnership with other entities from the public sector, civil society or academia for public good. Data collaboratives, when designed responsibly, are key to addressing reuse of data for public good. This paper seeks to answer what institutional arrangements and operational dynamics enable private-sector data holders to collaborate with external parties to create new public value.
