sustainable data access

As part of the ODI’s innovation programme, we are exploring how to make data access sustainable.

Our host Kristin Hadland, Communications Associate, talks to ODI Researchers Diana Szasz and Joe Massey, and guest Polly Hudson, Director of Colouring London, based at the Alan Turing Institute.

They discuss the need to look at sustainability and long term financial outlooks for data projects, the importance of feedback beyond the development stage of any data tool, and how you can make the most of using the new ODI Sustainable Data Access Workbook prototype. They also explore next steps, and how the prototype fits into the ODI’s new programmes of work going forwards.

As it is not the final version of the workbook, we really want to hear from you if you are interested in using the tool, if you have used it, and if you have any questions or suggestions to help us improve or develop the workbook further. Get in touch using the form below.

Check out our newly launched beta prototype when it launches later this month and read more about the full ODI Sustainable data access project.

And for more information on this subject area do check out our ODI reports Designing sustainable data institutions and Data institutions: reducing costs and improving sustainability, and catch up on our previous podcasts Making data institutions financially sustainable and Sustainable access to data.

This podcast was recorded remotely over Cleanfeed.
