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. Data Bites aims to change that.

Our latest event, the 40th in our series, was a justice special, where the speakers presented their work in an exciting, quickfire format.

Each speaker had eight minutes, followed by eight minutes of questions from the audience.

This month's speakers were: 

  • Dan Corry, Chief Executive of New Philanthropy Capital, on the work of the Justice Data Lab
  • Toby Hayward-Butcher, Head of Strategy & Delivery, Better Outcomes through Linked Data (BOLD) Programme, on better supporting people with complex needs by linking and improving the government data held on them in a safe and secure way
  • Thomas Pope, Deputy Chief Economist at the Institute for Government, on the IfG's justice data project
  • Anna Powell-SmithDirector of the Centre for Public Data, on data and statistical gaps in criminal justice.

The event was chaired by Gavin Freeguard, Associate at the Institute for Government.
