Share Data Sharing | Research & Statistics | Workshop

Event Details

What: Full day workshop to discuss proposals for data sharing to support research & statistics

When: 10:00-17:00, 23 July 2014

Where: Admiralty House, Ripley Courtyard, 26 Whitehall, London, SW1A 2DY

The sharing of personal data held by government has been proposed by the Cabinet Office and departments as a way of improving our understanding of the UK’s economy and society by supporting better research and statistics: 

This open policy process is intended to involve a broad range of experts from civil society, academia and beyond in exploring the benefits, risks, limitations, governance and alternatives for sharing personal data within government. It will result in a policy paper outlining areas of agreement and disagreement between and within the civil society, expert and government groups involved.

Among other issues, this workshop will explore:

  • Is data sharing an effective way of supporting better research and statistics?
  • What should be the parameters and limitations to data sharing for this purpose?
  • What alternatives are there to data sharing for addressing these issues?
  • What safeguards need to be in place to ensure public trust?
  • What scrutiny process should a data sharing proposal be required to go through?
  • How can the scrutiny of data sharing be improved (e.g. to be more transparent and accountable)?
The workshop will form the first step of the development of the policy paper.
