British Academy and Royal Society launch public consultation on data governance
The British Academy and Royal Society have recently teamed up to look into the data governance landscape in the UK. Last week they launched a public consultation as part of the project which will close on the 4th November. Given the work of techUK’s Big Data Governance Working Group, techUK will be developing a response to this consultation.
The consultation explains that the purpose of the project is to conduct a rapid review of new uses of data and their implications, and a holistic consideration of the governance landscape, in order to make recommendations for governance arrangements that can ensure the UK remains a world leader in this area.
The project will draw on scholars and scientists from across disciplines and will look at current and historical case studies of data governance, and of broader technology governance, from a range of countries and sectors. It will seek to enable connected debate by creating common frameworks to move debates on data governance forward.
techUK is seeking member input to develop its response to the questions being raised by the call for evidence which can be found here.
Members with an interest in joining a conference call to discuss the questions being raised and help develop techUK’s response are asked to get in touch with Sue Daley by Friday 7th October.
In the meantime if you would like to discuss the work of this project, or techUK’s Big Data Governance Working Group, in more detail please do not hesitate to get in touch
