In taking on urgent global challenges, organizations are faced with a critical hurdle: a lack of necessary data. There are many ongoing efforts to fill this data gap, including developing new technologies, sources, and collaborations. But promising data-sharing partnerships and data collaboratives (particularly between the private and public sectors) can struggle to overcome institutional and legal barriers.
This resource provides both an analytical framework and an online library of legal clauses that capture the key elements of sharing agreements for data collaboration, complete with links to several detailed guides. This resource addresses the lack of clarity around data sharing and data action issues that often result in high transaction costs and significant delays during the negotiation process.

But in reality, they can also present challenges.
