ICYMI – Data Sharing: What’s next for Smart Data?
On 4 May, techUK hosted a virtual panel discussion taking a look at the Government’s plans to introduce economy-wide and cross-sector Smart Data schemes to deliver consumer benefits, drive cross-sector data driven innovation and help level the playing field for smaller businesses who do not have access to large data sets.
The panel also explored how the Government should identify and prioritise which sectors to introduce Smart Data schemes to, while ensuring sustainable funding models for the businesses that will be required to implement the new requirements.
The panel included:
- Sinead Coogan Jobes, Head of Policy, Sky
- Helen Fairfax-Wall, Head of Digital and Scams Policy, Which?
- John Fitzpatrick, Head of Smart Data, Department for Business and Trade
- Resham Kotecha, Head of Policy, Open Data Institute
