Data for Policy 2017 conference

Data for Policy 2017 conference – the third in a series of prestigious annual international conferences exploring the theories and applications of data science for government policy and research. Following the past two conferences at University of Cambridge, the UK Government Data Science Partnership (Go-Science, GDS, ONS) is hosting this year’s conference at Westminster Conference Centre (1VS) in London.

Data for Policy is an independent initiative launched in 2015 at its inaugural conference “Policy-making in the Big Data Era: Opportunities and Challenges” that was hosted by the University of Cambridge. The second conference “Frontiers of Data Science for Government: Ideas, Practices, and Projections” was also held at the same venue with further support from the European Commission in 2016. The series has proven to be a key international discussion forum around the theory and applications of Data Science as relevant to governments and policy research, and supported by a large number of key stakeholders including prestigious academic institutions, government departments, international agencies, non-profit institutions, and businesses.
