Joining the Data Sharing Coalition

Why join the Data Sharing Coalition?

Do you want to:

  • Help unlock the true value of cross-sectoral data sharing by stimulating unified and secure cross-sectoral data sharing under the control of the entitled party?
  • Gain and share knowledge about (cross-sectoral) data sharing?
  • Define and realise cross-sectoral use cases of data sharing?
  • Become part of an open and involved community that will enrich your network?  

We then welcome you to register as a participant of the Data Sharing Coalition.

Contribution of participants

Participants are expected to actively contribute to achieving the objectives of the Data Sharing Coalition. The amount of time you invest depends on the activities you are involved in. Participants can:

  • Contribute to the definition and realisation of cross-sectoral use cases of data sharing
  • Provide input and expertise to determine the harmonisation potential between data sharing initiatives (Data Sharing Canvas)
  • Drive knowledge sharing about (cross-sectoral) data sharing

Different types of participation

Within the Data Sharing Coalition, we have defined different roles and levels of commitment for participants. We expect our participants to invest a certain amount of time in the Data Sharing Coalition based on what coalition activities they would like to be involved in. This varies from participation in knowledge sharing sessions to active contribution to the development of use cases and the generic agreements. This way, any type of organisation can participate and optimally contribute to the objectives of the Data Sharing Coalition.
