Get your brand seen: sponsor the next ODI Summit

The Open Data Institute’s (ODI’s) annual flagship event brings people together to discuss the future of data – from exciting milestones and innovations, to important issues and challenges.

The Summit recognises and celebrates the relationship between people and data; it illuminates what it means for us all to be data people.

This year’s virtual event included an exciting lineup of high profile, international keynote speakers, interactive panels, roundtable discussions, performances, taster workshops and demos – all exploring key themes about the future of data.

Top speakers include the ODI’s co-founders – inventor of the web Sir Tim Berners-Lee and artificial intelligence expert Sir Nigel Shadbolt – and the ODI’s Vice President Jeni Tennison.

The ODI summit was the first time I was in a room full of open data and digital experts talking about diversity in the sector and the need to improve outcomes.
