Data Analytics Week- Call for contributions!

Get involved in techUK's Data Analytics Week, taking place Monday 27 September- 1 October 2021.

On Monday 27 September techUK will kick start its annual Data Analytics Week! Throughout the week members will have the opportunity to demonstrate the latest, cutting-edge developments in the field of data analytics by participating in events and contributing thought leadership blogs/insights.

Over the past 18 months data analytics has played a huge role in the way we’ve adapted and responded to the COVID-19 pandemic. In some cases, the government and public services opened up datasets to the private sector for the first time. In other instances, we experienced individual public services pool their datasets, allowing for more sophisticated data analysis. So this year, in addition to highlighting some of the most successful, recent data analytics tools, projects and services, we will focus on the next steps needed to ensure we continue to address existing fundamental data governance issues, such as data quality, availability, and interoperability, to ensure the value and potential of data and data-driven technologies is fully realised. We will explore what good quality data looks like (including the applicability of kitemarking initiatives) and determine how innovative forms of data sharing can be scaled effectively and responsibly.

We are looking for members interested in providing input around the use of data analytics across the following four key sectors:

  • Monday- Healthcare
  • Tuesday- Cybersecurity
  • Wednesday- Environment, including smart cities, transport and energy
  • Thursday- Public Sector
  • On the Friday, we’ll focus specifically on the importance of good data governance. Members will have the opportunity to highlight best practice examples of responsible data sharing across different organisations and provide their own views and perspectives on how we can improve data quality and availability in the future.

If you’d like to contribute case studies, blogs or videos as part of techUK’s Data Analytics Week, please send across all contributions sent to and by COP Friday 17 September.  Further details on how to contribute can be found here. If you have any further questions on this campaign week, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
