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 44th 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: 

  • Stan Gilmour, National Risk Technology Lead at the Office of the Chief Scientific Adviser, National Police Chief’s Council, to provide an update from his discussion at Data Bites #8 on the progress towards a Common Data Platform for cross-agency data collaboration in support of public health approaches to serious violence prevention and the potential for wider support to ‘whole of society’ change programmes
  • Lex Jones, Chief Executive of the Registry Trust, on using better data to make better decisions
  • Michał Poręba, Head of Profession for Data Architecture and Data Engineering at the Department for Business and Trade, on Data in DDaT: Our Perspective
  • Jen Woolford, Director of Population Statistics at the Office for National Statistics, on the future of population statistics

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