Dear network, colleagues, partners, friends…
2018 was a very important year for the ODI, and for data more broadly.
Drawing on experience from our first five years, we published our strategy for working towards our vision of a world where data works for everyone.
To achieve this, we set out our mission to work with companies and governments to build an open, trustworthy data ecosystem, and published our theory of change and manifesto for bringing about the best outcomes with data.
The highlights we’ve featured in this report are only some of the many programmes, projects, events and partnerships that we have learned from and are proud of being part of in 2018. I look forward to 2019 and the opportunities and challenges it will bring us.
– Jeni Tennison, CEO, ODI.
