This was a year-long project conducted in Hong Kong to support evidence-based policymaking, supporting good data governance, green smart cities, and strong data security and protection. The project developed a Proof-of-Concept to demonstrate a trusted data sharing mechanism – Data Trust 1.0 – could be implemented to allow transport operators and service providers to share limited amounts of data for the purposes of limited-scope, mode-specific research e.g. research which asks “how many people cycle to work between 8-9am?”
While this research was conducted for transport operators, the Data Trust 1.0 model is applicable across all sectors. Funding was provided by the Hong Kong Innovation and Technology Commission, and supported generously by sponsors Daimler, MTR, Thales, and Via.
