Why data sharing is good

This lighthearted event is aimed at anyone with an enquiring mind, a sense of humour and an interest in social impact. Take part in this fun debate and learn how shared data can shape government policy and improve our lives.

You may not like how supermarkets, search engines and social media platforms use what they know about you, but did you know this data can help to better society? Sharing your data could be the socially responsible thing to do!

Join Chris Coates from the University of Essex as he presents research from the UK Data Service, from 7pm - 8pm on Wednesday 7th November at The Minories in Colchester. He has previously made audiences laugh at a TEDx event, Cafe Scientifique, Pint of Science and at international conferences.

This event is part of the nationwide Festival Of Social Science 2018 and is completely free of charge.
