Five years of the ODI

In the next five years, we expect to see, among other things, the adoption of a broader range of data sharing models; the creation and utilisation of many more trusted research environments; and the expansion of data assurance practices – demonstrating that data and the organisations collecting, using and sharing it are trustworthy.

We will engage and collaborate across the world; improve data literacy in response to the needs of organisations; work with others to build trust in data and the trustworthiness of organisations collecting and using it; and extend our reach by leveraging digital technology to work with others.

We believe that the best foundation for data infrastructure is open data. While this remains one of our guiding principles, we also think that data from across the Data Spectrum – from closed to shared to open – can benefit everyone: businesses, governments, civil society, and individuals.
