Unlocking Data, Advancing Impact

A global competition to create privacy-enhancing technologies to accelerate data-driven decision making in epidemiology. The Challenge will award up to five winners USD 50,000 each. is partnering with a global financial institution, Harvard OpenDP, researchers from the Pontifical Javeriana University, and a scientific research philanthropic non-profit organization, to run a Privacy-Enhancing Technologies (PETs) for Public Health Challenge to create innovative differential privacy (DP) solutions to unlock privately held commercial sensitive data and enable optimal data-driven decision making in epidemiology.

This challenge is conceived as a global, two-phase competition with a clear focus: to empower epidemiologists by providing them with advanced analytical tools developed within the OpenDP framework (we will consider similar/other frameworks in future years). These resulting tools will be designed to enable access to new financial transaction data to support epidemiological policy decision-making. Differential privacy empowers practitioners to drive progress by drawing meaningful statistical information from sensitive data while offering strong privacy guarantees to individuals.

Deadline for submissions: 7pm EST on April 25, 2024
