This event will gather people and organisations from across the engineering sector to discuss why sharing data is integral to creating a safer world for everyone

Unsafe infrastructure can result in accidents that are potentially life threatening, both to those who maintain it and to the general public. Some accidents could be avoided if more data was shared and available on our built infrastructure, allowing structural problems to be identified and improvements to be made.

Hosted by the Open Data Institute, with support from Lloyd’s Register Foundation, the ‘Sharing engineering data for the public good’ event will gather people and organisations from across the engineering sector to discuss why sharing data is integral to creating a safer world for everyone.

This event is part of a larger initiative to develop a shared vision around better use of data.

We encourage you to register for this event if you are part of:

  • The engineering and built environment industry
  • A government department that manages or funds infrastructure initiatives
  • A regulatory body for engineering and the built environment or for health and safety
  • A research institution with a focus on data sharing or the improvement of engineering theory and practice
  • Media organisations with an interesting in the latest developments in the engineering sector

Please note that by registering, you are only expressing an interest in attending the event. We will contact interested parties shortly.
