The Data Cooperative (Data CO-OP) Platform for Social Impact aims to advance data-driven research in the social sciences and public health by making access to linked datasets more effective and affordable.
The main focus of this infrastructure is supporting research in public health, community and social wellbeing. In this project, we consult a wide range of stakeholders, pilot a shared infrastructure model, report from similar infrastructure in U.S and Europe, and form a focus group to address the issue of responsible data sharing for sensitive social and health data.
Who is this project for?
- Social science and medical researchers
- Public health professionals
What does this project enable?
The Data CO-OP platform aims to reduce the complexity of data discovery, increasing efficiency and reducing the cost of data-driven research in public health and social science. Our pilot project provides a blueprint for a larger project to implement the Data CO-OP platform across project partners.
