Better use of data is key to more effective government. Across government, teams are doing fascinating work with data. But those projects don’t get the attention they deserve. At this event, the 12th in our series, our speakers presented their data projects in an exciting, quickfire format. Each set of speakers had eight minutes, followed by eight minutes of questions from the audience. In July we heard from: Andrew Morris, Director of Health Data Research UK, on Health Data Science in the Covid-19 era and options and opportunities for the UK. Kerina Jones, Professor of Population Data Science, Swansea University, on information governance and public engagement in using population datasets. Kirby Swales, Deputy Director, and Lan-Ho Man, Principal Research Officer, Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government, on the potential of linked administrative data in social policy programmes (including Troubled Families and Homelessness Reduction). Professor Betsy Stanko, Senior External Advisor and Amy Summerfield, Head of Engagement, Data and Analytical Services, Ministry of Justice, on MoJ’s pioneering data-linking programme Data First. This event was chaired by Gavin Freeguard, Programme Director and Head of Data and Transparency at the Institute for Government. We would like to thank ADR UK (Administrative Data Research UK) for supporting this event.
