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 high-trust data use system creating value for all New Zealanders.
The Partnership is an independent group that is 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.
Over recent months we have been engaging with thousands of New Zealanders and understanding different people's views on how their data should be used and shared.
The Data Futures Partnership is taking what it learns to draft guidelines for data use, designed to help organisations build and maintain the trust of those whose data they wish to use.
