Accelerating the equitable use of data for common good

World Economic ForumAug 5, 2021
The goal of the Data for Common Purpose Initiative is to create a new flexible data governance model that allows for the combining of data from personal, commercial, and government sources to be used for the common good. Respect for individual privacy rights and trust are a core feature of the initiative, and a multi-stakeholder base is working together to ensure these rights are preserved while removing growth-hampering policy barriers.

DCPI has also launched a press release announcing a major milestone in their work to establish a globally-interoperable network of data exchanges: https://www.weforum.org/press/2021/08…
