Government Data Science Festival 2022


1. Background

Dear Colleagues,

Since 2017, the Government Data Science Conference has brought the data science community from across the UK public sector together to share knowledge and connect with colleagues. The community includes a variety of professions who enable the delivery of data in the public sector.

Last year, we successfully hosted the first fully digital festival week despite the challenges of the coronavirus pandemic. We propose that next year, the Government Data Science Festival 2022 will be a hybrid digital and face-to-face event with a focus on ‘The future of data science for public good’. As ever, your input as a member of the data science community, from planning stage onwards, is vital to ensuring its relevance and success. We would be grateful if you would answer the following questions to inform the direction of the next festival.

We look forward to hearing your views!
