Data sharing practice examples
There is no single “right” way for sharing data, or – at least – no single model has emerged yet to make every other option unsuitable or obsolete. In this section, we observe and document experimental or established practices of companies, governments and organisations across countries and sectors.
Our ambition is for our examples to show promising data sharing models and give insights into the underlying legal arrangements, technical mechanisms and potential economic benefits for actors involved. The set we have selected for you so far is just a starting point and will grow over time, as we identify and document more cases.
Also, we want to hear from you. You have the opportunity to rate the practice examples to help other readers identify which were the most useful for you to learn from, and to comment on them, whether on this page or discussing together with other practitioners in the user forum.
