Webinar 3 – C4NET
A community Data CO-OP is a form of collaboration in which participants pool data and data capabilities. It provides insights into social challenges, helping identify better outcome measures to support vulnerable communities.

Swinburne University of Technology has formed a Data CO-OP with Australian National University, Griffith University, The University of Melbourne, The University of Tasmania, Research Data Australia, ADA, APO, AURIN, Trove, and partners with international experts such as The GovLab at New York University.

To mark the launch of the Swinburne Community Data CO-OP Platform, we invite you to attend our webinars on data collaboratives.

James Seymour, CEO of the Centre for New Energy Technologies, will describe the role of C4NET in removing the barrier to access and improved utilisation of energy data for research. Discussion will also focus on the potential application and use cases of overlaying energy data with social and health data and developing novel use cases for energy data.

Jul 7, 2020 01:00 PM in Canberra, Melbourne, Sydney
