What was it?

On the 1st July Bristol City Council attended an event called ‘We need to talk about data’ and spoke around the REPLICATE project. Data is intrinsically intertwined with our day-to-day lives, and for many of us, our working lives are focused on understanding data, the ethics behind this and cyber security needs. The rate of change in the world of data, such as sources, uses, and governance is swift. A wider perspective can often spark innovation for those open to seek it.

Throughout the day, participants showcased the current successes, challenges and opportunities associated with data in our lives. Attendees were able to make new connections and were helped to shape the future of data-related innovations in both research and practice.

During the session, the City Innovation Team were involved in a number of Smart City initiatives were they discussed around mobility, energy, air quality and urban transport. Attendees had the chance of asking questions to the project leads as well as having a general discussion on emerging themes, issues and opportunities for the future, as well as learning from the REPLICATE project.

This event was organised by DRAGoN (Data Research, Access, and Governance Network), who are an interdisciplinary research group aiming to bring together researchers and practitioners from academia, think-tanks, industry and government.
