Data Sharing Coalition

The Data Sharing Coalition is an open and growing international initiative started in the Netherlands in which a wide variety of organisations work together to facilitate cross-sectoral data sharing.
For the development and application of AI, access to data is crucial. The more relevant data that is available, the better the predictive value becomes and thus the more useful application of AI applications. Access to and sharing of data must be organised in a responsible way in the Netherlands. More access to data results in an acceleration of AI implementation and higher accuracy, which results in better service.
To support the development of existing and new data sharing initiatives, the Data Sharing Coalition provides a platform for structured knowledge exchange to stimulate cross-sector data sharing, facilitating interoperability between data sharing initiatives and strengthening individual initiatives. To this end, the Data Sharing working group of the Netherlands AI Coalition (NL AIC) works together with the Data Sharing Coalition.

The NL AIC approaches data sharing from the AI application and its particularities, while the Data Sharing Coalition focuses more on transactional data sharing between organisations from different sectors and the generic agreements needed to facilitate this across sector boundaries. These two initiatives complement each other perfectly, and in many areas they make use of each other’s insights and results.
