About the session

Data sharing is vital for the National Data Strategy's five missions. In our ever-changing political, social, and environmental landscape, current cross-government data is crucial for informed real-time decisions. Public sector organisations must address risk aversion, inconsistent data formats, and privacy concerns to ensure data availability and trustworthiness.

  1. Spreading excellence across Government - the scale of the challenge
  2. Leadership's Role in Overcoming Obstacles such as Funding, Data Sharing Agreements and Credit Sharing
  3. Data discoverability & inconsistent data format
