Design Patterns for Data Sharing

Design Patterns for Data Sharing
(Pending editorial review)
United Kingdom (London)

This open source catalogue is a collection of design patterns for sharing data. People can submit new patterns or use cases to help improve it.

Some patterns are participatory, some only work for digital services and some don’t exist yet. We hope to pilot these speculative patterns to test and improve them. By developing more empowering methods for sharing data we’ll see better products and services in the world.

The catalogue is continuously maintained and will be updated as new consent models emerge.
