There are huge economic, social and environmental opportunities from treating our data as a national strategic asset. The Data Futures Partnership has been created to help lead the development of a data-use system that will create value for all New Zealanders by making better use of our data.
The Partnership is an independent group that is partly funded by Government to work with all New Zealanders to create the right systems, settings and conditions to allow our data to be put to work making New Zealand a better place.
The Partnership is currently reviewing initial project concepts for the second tranche of the catalyst programme.
Eligible projects will attack difficult real world problems, involve several willing public and private sector participants, and demonstrate value of data-use to a wider audience.
