This work explores how twinning programmes are helping French and British cities to solve problems in their communities with data.

Specific reports will be published on how APIs can support personal data sharing in the energy sector, and how the most effective data registries are being created and used, as recommended by the UK France Taskforce on Data Innovation.

It is designed to enable both countries to share knowledge and pioneer new approaches to data innovation.

This work is part of a three-year innovation programme, running to March 2020 with a funding profile of £2m each year from Innovate UK, the UK’s innovation agency.

The work will enable the UK to build on its established strengths in data and data analytics, break new ground in creating value from data across industry, and ensure that the UK remains at the forefront of data innovation globally.
