Introduction to Data Sharing Agreements (GVX 013)

Start: February 12, 2020
Duration: 4 weeks

Data sharing between governments and their partners is often helpful for creating software applications, conducting research, developing or improving policies, and more. Open data programs provide a clear route for sharing and retrieving unrestricted data. However, it is often in the public interest for governments to provide restricted data - that which has limitations imposed by national, regional, or local laws, policies, and rules - to third parties. When sharing restricted data, governments have an obligation to hold third parties accountable to protect the public and preserve trust. At the end of the Sprint, participants will be able to:
- List the reasons why it is important to develop data sharing agreements.
- Describe how other localities have developed successful data sharing agreements.
- Identify the key elements of a data sharing agreement.
