Data coops in understanding service delivery approaches

OurData.coop has started to explore “whether there may be scope for third sector organisations to develop data coops for community benefit”, http://ourdata.coop/#mission. Could data coops combine personal, organisational and public open data, and help the sector understand the costs/impact associated with different approaches to service delivery?

Partners include Locality, well known sector solicitors Anthony Collins and others, and the website indicates a sector survey is due in November.
