On 9 September 2020, the UK government launched its National Data Strategy for consultation.

In response, the Open Data Institute (ODI) worked in partnership with the Ada Lovelace Institute, the Centre for Public Data, the Institute for Government and the Royal Statistical Society on the ‘Getting data right: perspectives on the UK National Data Strategy 2020’ series of events.

The aim of this series was to coordinate input, feedback and constructive recommendations for the UK government about how the goals of the National Data Strategy can best be implemented for the public good in a way that encourages growth and innovation while also protecting and empowering people using the tools for ethics, good governance and regulation.

The events analysed the four Pillars of the National Data Strategy, and convened conversations amongst experts and practitioners about how these themes could be addressed and realised practically and sustainably.

The ‘Getting data right: perspectives on the UK National Data Strategy 2020’ report – produced by the Ada Lovelace Institute, the Centre for Public Data, the Institute for Government, the Open Data Institute, and the Royal Statistical Society – details the key insights gathered through the series, alongside detailed summaries of each event.
