The Governance Lab, SDSN TReNDS, World Economic Forum, and University of Washington — Applied Physics Laboratory are pleased to announce the Contracts for Data Collaboration Workshop, which will be held on September 23, 2019 from 10:00am to Noon at One World Trade Center in New York City.

Contracts for Data Collaboration (C4DC) is a new initiative seeking to address the legal barriers to data collaboration. Established by the Governance Lab (GovLab), UN SDSN Thematic Research Network on Data and Statistics (TReNDS), World Economic Forum, and University of Washington, C4DC’s mission is to address the inefficiencies of developing contractual agreements for public-private data collaboration.

Cross-sector data collaboration for the common good is rapidly emerging as a key innovation for creating sustainable impact. As documented on The GovLab’s and the Data Collaboratives Explorer, cross-sector data collaboration in the interest of creating public value is rapidly emerging and creating real-world impacts. As highlighted in the project’s inception brief, C4DC aims to create value by developing a repository of legal clauses, documentation, related tools and resources.

The C4DC Contractual Wheel of Data Collaboration

The workshop — held on the occasion of the UN General Assembly — will convene thought-leaders and decision-makers from the public, private, and civil sectors who are focused on advancing legal innovations to catalyze public-private data collaboration. Participants will focus on how greater transparency, access and understanding of data sharing agreements can advance data collaboratives. Additionally participants will provide feedback and requirements on early stage C4DC prototypes.
