Are you a data nut or a data sceptic?

Join our panel, which includes Cambridge University medical research, the Cabinet Office Behavioural Insights Team, Cambridgeshire County Council and artist Mark Farid to hear how data enthusiasts are using personal and public data for social purposes, how citizens can access and use data relevant to their area, and how governments and researchers are drawing on huge datasets to drive policy and behaviour change. 

Come with questions for the panel.

About Us

We aim to support public policy research across Cambridge University, working with colleagues in science, social science, the arts and humanities, to apply new thinking to public policy problems and promote research and analysis into the public policy process. We hope to connect and raise the profile of existing public policy related work across the University and support collaborative research that includes policy development in a range of subject areas.
