for a program to strengthen international data collaboratives and increase responsible data sharing  
The National Center for Civic Innovation serves as the fiscal sponsor for the New York University GovLab. The GovLab builds awareness and gathers operational evidence about "data collaboratives" in which participants from different sectors, in particular private companies, exchange their data to create public value. Under this grant, the GovLab will advance two goals. First, it seeks to foster more sustainable and institutionalized sharing of privately held data. Second, it seeks to build data responsibility frameworks that help data providers and users balance between the risks and benefits of using private data for public good.
