Demos and Dr. Foster are proud to present this event at the Conservative Party Conference examining the benefits and challenges of making government-held data accessible for innovators in the public, private and third sectors. We are delighted to be joined by:
Francis Maude MP, Minister for the Cabinet Office and Paymaster General
Lara Carmona, Head of Policy, Marie Curie Cancer Care
Kieron O'Hara, Senior Research Fellow in Electronics and Computer Science, University of Southampton
Roger Taylor, Research Director, Dr Foster Intelligence
James Crabtree, Comment Editor, Financial Times (Chair)
Demos research suggests that the public, whilst often mistrustful of the state's use of their information, do appreciate the enormous potential benefits of government data sharing for innovation and improvement in public services. This event will consider the potential benefits of data sharing and greater levels of government transparency in revolutionising public services.
