Research project

The PETRAS Data Sharing Foundation: Building a Trustworthy Data Sharing Ecology for IoT Data Assets (PETRAS-DSF)

Project overview

The aim of the PETRAS Data Sharing Foundation (PETRAS-DSF) is to create a data foundation for the PETRAS programme that supports the sharing of PETRAS data assets.

The data foundations framework provides a means to create trustworthy data sharing institutions that feature a combination of data governance processes and partially-automated procedures to support data sharing activities. Data foundations endeavour to address challenges that hamper efforts to share data across organisations and devices, especially in situations involving the exploitation of sensitive data (e.g., data that might be used for nefarious purposes).
