UKAuthority Innovation & Data4Good 2021

Effective and innovative use of data powered the public sector’s covid response and evidenced the power of data for the public good



The public sector has relied heavily on its use of data in its pandemic response

New rules on sharing information across health unleashed vital information about the pandemic’s progression, identification of new treatments and innovation, and has underpinned the support of our most vulnerable.
Now that this power has been seen, what can we do next? What is the potential within data for unlocking public service improvement and innovation – for improving peoples’ lives?
This event is free to attend for the public sector and is CPD accredited.
