Friday lunchtime lectures are for everyone and are free to attend. You bring your lunch, we provide tea and coffee, an interesting talk, and enough time to get back to your desk.


How our personal data is collected, shared and used is coming under scrutiny in nearly every sector of the UK. Improving how we use personal data is going to be key to building a stronger data infrastructure and services that benefit all of society. At the same time we need to safeguard the security and privacy of our personal data if we are to have trust in how it is used – both privacy and openness create trust.

Join the ODI for a discussion about potential ways that design and technology might allow us to control how our personal data is collected, shared and used. Panellists include Sarah Gold, founder of IF; David Miller, co-founder of OpenHealthcare and Matt Stroud, co-founder of the Personal Data Foundry.
