Smart Data Foundry

The Smart Data Foundry is an independent collaboration between governments and regulators, the financial services, industry and academia. It is mission-led, always looking to unlock the power of financial data to tackle the most pressing current issues to create positive impact across society, the economy and the environment.

To support Smart Data Foundry's ground-breaking work, EPCC is operating the Smart Data Foundry Research Environment Safe Haven, the underlying data and computing facility that hosts a rich variety of financial data, including the deidentified transactional data of individuals and organisations. 

The facility allows data to be linked and made available within a strict framework to a variety of actors, including academic researchers, policy makers, regulators, financial institutions, and companies that use technology to improve the delivery of financial services.
