D2N2 joins Emergent Alliance to support UK Covid-19 Response

D2N2 has joined the Emergent Alliance, a not for profit group of organisations specialising in data, analytics and technology, working together to help the UK’s recovery from COVID-19.

Currently the only Local Enterprise Partnership member, D2N2 will provide its expertise and Data Centre as the Alliance looks to analyse a broad set of economic, behavioural, and sentiment data.

Moving forward, the Emergent Alliance will help inform decision making on industry, regional, and global economic challenges due to the crisis and to aid societal recovery by drawing on the expertise of its organisation members, its volunteer data citizens and a curated global catalogue of open & private datasets.

It is hoped that the work of the Emergent Alliance will provide new insights and practical applications for small businesses, corporations and the government to aid in the rebuilding of the economy while measuring the impact of COVID-19.

This work will be done with a sharp focus on privacy and security, using industry best practices for data sharing and robust governance.

The Alliance is a diverse collaboration of corporates, individuals, Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) and the government, who contribute expertise, data and resources.

Its founding members include IBM, Microsoft, ODI Leeds and Rolls-Royce.

D2N2 Head of Strategy & Policy Will Morlidge said: “D2N2 is proud to be a member of the Emergent Alliance working with global partners to change the way we use data to support the fight against Covid-19.”
