This is a live online event. Please do not travel to the Institute.


We are excited to announce another online-only Data Bites event. Please join us at 18:00 on Wednesday 6 October 2021.

We will be taking questions virtually during the event via the integrated event chat.

Better use of data is key to more effective government. Across government, teams are doing fascinating work with data. But those projects don’t get the attention they deserve.

At this month’s event, the 23rd in our series, the speakers will present their work in an exciting, quickfire format. Each speaker has eight minutes, followed by eight minutes of questions from the audience.

This month’s speakers are:

  • Or Lenchner, CEO of Bright Data, presenting lessons learned from how the commercial world draws insight from online public data
  • Andrew Engeli, Deputy Director for Environmental Monitoring for Health Protection at the UK Health Security Agency, on the challenges of developing novel data sources in the context of the pandemic response
  • Bethan Charnley, Head of National Data Strategy Implementation at the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, on monitoring and evaluating the National Data Strategy
  • Patrick Royce, Energy Engineer at the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, on the My2050 Calculator for exploring pathways to Net Zero

The event will be chaired by Gavin Freeguard, Associate at the Institute for Government.
