Data governance plays a crucial role in the VALORADA initiative by serving as an orienting conceptual framework for adaptation. VALORADA recognizes data as a common good, emphasising collective ownership and the importance of empowering stakeholders through data. By integrating data governance principles, the initiative aims to establish guidelines and mechanisms that ensure responsible and equitable data management. This approach enables stakeholders to harness the power of data effectively, fostering collaboration and enabling informed decision-making for the benefit of all involved. VALORADA is dedicated to supporting transformations through a holistic framework that utilises data to address transformative needs. The initiative places a special emphasis on social resilience as a core conceptual approach, guiding the utilisation of data and information.
VALORADA recognises the value of existing data and leverages it to generate new knowledge. By offering demonstrators novel ways to utilise data, VALORADA bridges the gap between useful data and data that can be effectively utilised. Additionally, VALORADA promotes increased collaboration between the demonstrators and the scientific community, fostering a mutually beneficial partnership that enhances the effectiveness and impact of the initiative.
