The legacy, the learnings and the insights for successful data sharing collaboration.

The Emergent Alliance: Insights, Learnings and Legacy

A not-for-profit community, formed in April 2020 at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, wanted to better inform the future economic decision-making of corporations, small businesses and nation states.

We created the space for data scientists to use their capabilities to make a real difference in the face of a global crisis.

A legacy of this organisation is that it leaves artefacts, models and practices that others might use to set up and lead communities, to answer the big questions we face both today and into the future.

Our story is documented in the Emergent Alliance Report.
