Central to C4DC is the objective of demystifying the complexity of data sharing agreements. Establishing the legal provisions for a data collaborative can be time-consuming and complex. By providing both an analytical framework and an online library of legal clauses which capture the key elements involved in a data collaboration, the transaction costs and misunderstandings that often occur during the negotiating of a data collaborative can be reduced.
