Data Bites #5: Getting things done with data in government

Wednesday 4 September 2019, 18:00 - 19:15

Followed by a drinks reception

Institute for Government 2 Carlton Gardens London SW1Y 5AA

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 fifth in our series, four organisations present their data projects in an exciting, quickfire format. Each set of speakers has eight minutes, followed by eight minutes of questions from the audience.

We will hear from:

  • Oli Vogel, Head of Recovery Performance at Indesser, on using data to identify vulnerable service users and treat them more fairly

  • Emma Gordon, Director, Strategic Hub at Administrative Data Research UK, on how government can make better use of administrative data for research

  • Mark Cheeseman, Deputy Director, Public Sector Fraud at the Cabinet Office Counter Fraud Centre of Expertise, on tackling fraud with data and analytics

  • Final speaker to be confirmed.

This event will be chaired by Gavin Freeguard, Programme Director and Head of Data and Transparency at the Institute for Government.

We would like to thank Equifax for supporting this event.
