Datasphere Fellowship Program
2022 - 2023

The Datasphere Initiative Fellowship is an interdisciplinary, global and diverse community of academics and practitioners with a mission to responsibly unlock the value of data for all.

Building on the experience of the first cohort of Datasphere Fellows (2021-2022), the Datasphere Initiative selected eight fellows to receive mentorship from the Datasphere Initiative team and partners around the globe to think critically and develop research and solutions outputs for pressing challenges related to data governance and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). 


How can the concept of the “datasphere” be useful for challenging perspectives and behavior towards data?

A key part of the fellow’s work was to explore the concept of the “datasphere” and how it can be useful for designing best practices and frameworks for data governance in a holistic manner, so its value is unlocked to all. The following videos present their initial perspectives on the datasphere concept and its practical significance.
