ODI Fridays: Developing a data cooperative (hosted by The Open Data Institute)
Could data cooperatives help organisations and communities collect, pool, process and share data for the benefits of their members?
In 2020 -21, Open Data Manchester set out to discover whether a data cooperative model could be developed that would enable organisations and communities collect, pool, process and share data for the benefits of their members.
This talk will discusses some of the findings of that work and the work of the Data Cooperative Working Group that formed from it.
This work was supported by the ODI’s Data Stimulus Fund, and Open Data Manchester worked with Carbon Coop and others .
