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.

This event was the 43rd in our series, 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: 

  • Kris De Meyer, Science Communication Fellow at University College London, on turning climate change data into useful metrics
  • Matt Lowe, Manager of FCA Innovation Lab, and Simran Singh, TechSprint Lead at FCA Innovation Lab, Financial Conduct Authority, on The Experimentation Wing of the Financial Conduct Authority: How the FCA’s Digital Sandbox and TechSprint initiatives enable the regulator to collaboratively explore and test out new technologies
  • Teresa Soter, Senior Policy Adviser at the Department for Science, Innovation and Technology, on conducting a public dialogue on trust in digital identity services
  • Liz Way, Senior Product Manager at NHS England, on the Secure Data Environment

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