#DataImpact 2018: Realising the Potential of Research Data

ONS and the UK Data Service will be jointly hosting a data impact and networking event on the evening of 1 February 2018.

The UK is facing a multitude of social and economic challenges from Brexit to the desire to create a fairer society served by efficient and affordable public services. Understanding and evaluating the impact of change will be critical to those needing to make informed decisions regarding the UK economy, society and people’s quality of life. Therefore, the event will explore and recognise examples of where the use of research data is already delivering a public benefit and will also explore opportunities to encourage innovative use of these data.

Hosted by Sarah Henry and Matthew Woollard, a panel of data experts will explore how to embrace the data revolution to respond to the social and economic challenges facing the UK.

There will be presentations on the findings and impact from recent research carried out using ONS research data.
