Data governance

Data is increasingly important to how we live. This project explores how we can best address the governance challenges for data management and data use, so that data can be harnessed for human flourishing.
Ongoing

The amount of data generated from the world around us has reached levels that were previously unimaginable. Meanwhile, uses of data-enabled technologies promise benefits, from improving healthcare and treatment discovery, to better managing critical infrastructure such as transport and energy.

These new applications can make a great contribution to human flourishing but to realise these benefits, societies must navigate significant choices and dilemmas: they must consider who reaps the most benefit from capturing, analysing and acting on different types of data, and who bears the most risk.

This project explores how we can best address governance challenges for data management and data use.
