About this Event
Data sharing in the private sector is notoriously difficult. Learn from the businesses that have made it work – and as result, have become trailblazers in their sector.
Sharing data securely and ethically can have a huge range of benefits – from building trust and delivering cost savings, to streamlining processes and developing innovative new services.
Find out first hand from businesses in and around Leeds how they’ve embraced data sharing and are discovering the benefits. We’ll also share findings from Open Data Institute research on the value of data sharing.
After lightning talks, you’ll get the chance to mingle with other businesses over drinks and nibbles.
