UNCTAD eWeek: Shaping the future of the digital economy
In the digital economy, it becomes clear that re-using datasets can deliver great societal value. To this end, data collaboratives have emerged as a new partnership model where data, often held by corporations, is made accessible for the public good. Central are Data Stewards, who can initiate these collaborations in a more systematic, and responsible manner. This panel will explore the role of data stewards within the contexts of statistical agencies; private companies, and the public sector.
