DataConnect23 is an online data conference with a difference. The conference is co-organised by the Government Data Quality Hub and the Central Digital and Data Office in Cabinet Office. It brings together data experts from across central Government, local government, devolved administrations, academia, and national institutes.
What does the conference cover?
In its third year, the programme includes over 100 sessions throughout the week. It has a diverse agenda created for and led by the public sector data community and seeks to build capability in data.
Sessions cover a range of different topics, including ChatGPT, data ethics, using data to support levelling up, future farming schemes, and workforce planning.
The conference gives you a chance to connect with like-minded professionals, learn new skills and gain insights into current trends.
