Not only were they able to provide essential nancial backing, they also gave the project credibility, contributed expertise, and connected us with other individuals and organisations that made important contributions to the work.

We would like to personally thank the working group that participated in the Data Commons Retreat and helped us to resolve the Blueprint document.
We would also like to thank the many people who generously gave their time to participate in focus group meetings, online discussions, case study workshops, and one-to-one interviews. Without this support the New Zealand Data Commons project would not have been possible.
A special call-out for Robert O’Brien and Haydn Read, whose experience and expertise guided the group towards making this a scalable and efficient alternative.
As part of the programme, we interviewed a range of people, and presented, attended or observed meetings with stakeholder groups who shared their challenges and hopes for doing data reuse better.
