Data Sharing Toolkit

Developed by Professor Elena Simperl, Dr Gefion Theurmer and PhD Web Science student, Johanna Walker from the University of Southampton, the 'toolkit' is aimed at helping organisations that want to generate value by sharing data or facilitating data sharing, and is derived from experience collected in the Data Pitch programme and related national and international initiatives.

Data plays a major role in the European economy, and building a European data economy is one of the strategic goals of the European Commission. Through the increase of data science techniques, not least Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI), the value and role of data as an asset becomes ever more crucial. This has made it more important for data to be accessible. However, much of the data that many solutions require are held within private organisations - and are only available if they are shared. Data sharing in this sense means allowing third parties specifically permissioned access to datasets to generate value.

Data Pitch is a EU-funded open innovation programme bringing together corporate and public-sector organisations that have data with startups and SMEs that work with data.
