Creating value from data requires organisations and individuals to have access to data and use it effectively and appropriately. This project sets out to investigate one aspect of this: trusted data sharing, and explores implications for policy and practice. A series of ten case studies illustrates emerging examples of data sharing and some of the key enablers and constraints, including governance, business models, technologies and regulation. A practical checklist for organisations has been created, based on learning the case studies.

This report is aimed at organisations that have identified the opportunity to create value through sharing data and are considering setting up arrangements for data sharing. Through this project and other initiatives, the Academy aims to play a role in supporting better use of data in engineering sectors and in the broader economy.
