Hear from the brave organisations who have already made, or are in the process of making a drastic changes in their sector

Want to transform how your entire sector operates? Think the way it uses and shares data to build services could be better? Hear from the organisations who have already made, or are in the process of making a drastic change, including Transport for London, OpenActive, Defra and Open Banking

Data could be the key to creating change across your whole sector, from how you offer services to how you design your entire business model. Sectors such as transport, sport, environment and banking have all been given a shake-up by innovators who saw the transformative potential of data, and were ready to put that into action.

These sectors have flipped their data business models by opening up data and engaging what we call ‘ecosystems’ of organisations – such as data publishers, businesses and startups – to collaborate around the data and provide new products and services.

Hear from these sectors through flash talks, a panel discussion and networking at this ODI Members event.

Free for ODI Members, £10 for non-members.
