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.
Discover the new Data CO-OP platform, its capabilities and how it could help you explore the world of data analytics.
Prof Jane Farmer, Director of the Social Innovation Research Institute, and A/Prof Amir Aryani, Head of the Social Data Analytics Lab (SoDA) at Swinburne University of Technology, introduce a new research data infrastructure that supports the creation of Data CO-OP projects in social science and public health. This platform is funded by the Australian Research Council and involves Swinburne University of Technology, Australian National University, Griffith University, The University of Melbourne, and The University of Tasmania.
Jane and Amir will discuss how this platform enables collaboration between universities, governments and not-for-profit to create collective social impact. They will co-present use cases of identifying valuable datasets in not-for-profit and local governments and transforming disconnected datasets into actionable insights.
