DataConnect22 is coming! – GOV.UK


Last year we organised DataConnect21 with our colleagues in the Data Standards Authority. Our first week-long data event featured 83 sessions, from around fifty different organisations. We had over 6000 registrations for events, with attendees coming from 325 organisations across the government, academia, the third sector and beyond.

And we are doing it again in 2022 so mark your calendars for 26 to 30 September.

DataConnect22 will feature the same great mix of sessions as last year, by and for people across the UK public sector. We know that there are fantastic data stories to share, so if you have a piece of work, a challenge, or an innovation you want the data community to know about, then bring it along to DataConnect.

If you would like to do a show and tell, share a challenge, run a workshop, take part in a panel discussion or showcase an innovation please sign up now. Or you can email us at dataconnect@digital.cabinet-office.gov.uk to talk about bringing your story to DataConnect22.  Every aspect of data belongs at DataConnect, from technical stories about data design, to strategic thinking about data leadership. DataConnect21 had speakers from a data apprentice up to director generals, if you are working with government data in any way then this is the event for you.

If you just want to attend, that’s fine too, you can register to receive information. Get updates about the event in the run up to DataConnect22; be one of the first to receive the schedule; and sign up for our free events across the week.

Please help us spread the word by telling your colleagues that DataConnect22 is coming!
