Empowered Data Societies

This project seeks to unlock and test new opportunities for data availability and data sharing between the Public and Private Sectors through the development of a new human-centric model.

Official Launch of Empowered Data Societies Project

The World Economic Forum hosted the Official Launch of the Empowered Data Societies Project on Wednesday, 21 October 2020. The recording for the Launch event was recorded and is available here.

Project Overview

Together with a multistakeholder community of academia, business, civil society and government, intractable problems will be examined through the lens of public private data sharing with a view to unlocking latent value to empower societies.

This project is being run in conjunction with the Government of Finland and will be piloted in the City of Helsinki in 2021.
