DEMOCRATIZING

DIGITAL DATA

FOR INDIA'S DATA-DRIVEN DECISION MAKING

ABOUT

METASTRING

India is at the threshold of a new wave where a billion citizens will have cheap data connectivity, and be consumers as well as producers of digital data.

Metastring aims to ride this digital wave to build the largest repository of democratized digital data (in the domains of its focus). Our goal is to support data-driven decision making to improve the quality of life of the citizens of India.  

We will serve as trustees of the data. We will catalyze,  bring together stakeholders, build partnerships, connect the dots, tie the loose ends, incentivize, gamify, whatever it takes, to instigate the largest democratized digital data revolution in history. We will help identify and build the right technology platforms & solutions, and to enable the right open tools to extract value from this data repository.

 
 

FOCUS DOMAINS

BIODIVERSITY
Metastring Foundation, in it's previous avatar as Strand Life Foundation has been instrumental in building India Biodiversity Portal to help biodiversity conservation in India. IBP is an enabling platform to crowd source, curate and aggregate biodiversity information. The platform has matured and now consists of a fully-featured webGIS module; a standards compliant species pages module; a document and open data module; and a citizen science observation module.

HEALTHCARE
In collaboration with the Centre for Health Ecologies and Technologies, Metastring has set up the Open Platform for Rare Diseases.  OPFORD aims to catalyse improvements in
health outcomes for rare diseases in India through awareness and advocacy campaigns, facilitating innovative partnership, funding and
risk-sharing models (including public-private models) for novel and affordable therapies and by helping in the development of appropriate 
regulatory frameworks for gene therapies and other advanced therapies that can have a transformative impact in these diseases.
