We are excited to announce another online-only Data Bites event. Please join us at 18:00 on Wednesday 8 September 2021, with our own Prof Morag Treanor as one of the speakers

We will be taking questions virtually during the event via the integrated event chat.

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 month's event, the 22nd in our series, the speakers will present their work in an exciting, quickfire format. Each speaker has eight minutes, followed by eight minutes of questions from the audience.

This month's speakers are:

  • Ruth Gilbert, Epidemiologist, University College London and Co-Director of the NIHR Children and Families Policy Research Unit, on the potential for the ECHILD Database to inform policy in health, education and social care
  • Gary Connell, Head of Data Ownership and Data Sharing at the Department for Education, on widening access to, and maximising the benefit of, Longitudinal Educational Outcomes data for England
  • Morag Treanor, Professor of Child and Family Inequalities at Heriot-Watt University, on linking data to better understand children’s lives and outcomes
  • Robert French, Senior Research Fellow at the School of Medicine, Cardiff University, on data linkage and Type 1 diabetes data for children

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