Access to the right data can help us to tackle the big challenges we face – from the earlier detection of disease to reducing pollution in urban spaces.

We need data to be stewarded responsibly to ensure that data is available to address these economic, societal and environmental issues, in ways that don’t cause harm to people and communities.

At the Open Data Institute, we’ve established a programme to explore the role of data institutions – organisations which purpose involves stewarding data on behalf of others, often towards public, educational or charitable aims.
