How to transform a whole sector

The Open Data Institute, 65 Clifton St, London, EC2A 4JE

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.

Confirmed speakers

Transport for London: How London travel has been transformed

Rikesh Shah, Head of Commercial Innovation at Transport for London (TfL)

Rikesh Shah is the Head of Commercial Innovation at Transport for London (TfL), the authority responsible for delivering the Mayor of London’s transport strategy. Research released by Deloitte in October 2017 showed that the release of open data by TfL is generating annual economic benefits and savings of up to £130m per year. Rikesh will talk about their open data journey and how open data has created an ecosystem of innovators. He’ll also highlight the successful factors and outcomes around startup engagement with corporates and some of the challenges around procurement.

Defra: Open data – intended and unintended outcomes

Mike Rose, Head Of Business Development at the Open Data Institute

Mike Rose was Head of Engagement at the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) when the organisation opened over 8,000 datasets. The aim was to alter how the department and its agencies approached sharing data to enable others to make better decisions. Mike will give an honest talk on the motivation and challenges around this mammoth project.
