We’re curating sessions around Covid-19, data collaboration and open cities at this year’s virtual edition of Northernlands 2, 6–7 July

Last year saw the first edition of Northernlands, a collaboration between ODI Leeds and The Kingdom of the Netherlands. This year, due to Covid-19, the event will be hosted virtually and will showcase the work happening across sectors that are making a difference, laying the foundations for a version of the future that is more radically open and innovative.

We will be curating and participating in various sessions from 6–7 July. It would be great if you could join us – register for free through Eventbrite now.

Session 1: Open Data Saves Lives – 6 July, 11:45-12:15

How should data be published during an emergency? We will be discussing data standards during the Covid-19 pandemic with our guests, from inside and outside the NHS, who share their insights into how open data saves lives.

Moderator: Jeni Tennison, Vice President & Chief Strategy Adviser, Open Data Institute.

Interviews with: Olivier Thereaux, Head of Research and Development, Open Data Institute; Guy Nakamura & Rasheed Wihaib, Co-founders, Track Together; Dr Indra Joshi, Director of AI, NHSX; Ming Tang, Director of Data and Analytics, NHS England.

This will be followed by a live Q&A session.

Session 2: Why is collaboration around data important in 2020 and beyond? – 6 July, 14:10-14:30

Getting the most value from data, whilst minimising its harmful impacts, is a community activity. But what actually is collaborative data maintenance? And how can communities work together to support the use of data? Find out about the BASEDEF framework, created by the open source community, and Open Data Manchester’s accessibility mapping work and the community support that Open Contracting provides through their OCDS Helpdesk.

Moderator: Leigh Dodds, Director of Advisory, Open Data Institute.

Interviews with: Sam Milsom, Open Data Manchester; Lindsey Marchessault, Director for Data and Engagement, Open Contracting Partnership.

This will be followed by a live Q&A session.

Session 3: Mobility in modern cities and the need for data institutions – 7 July, 10:45-11:05

Cities want to understand and tackle a range of different challenges — from congestion in urban environments to climate change – and they need data collected by private sector organisations to do that. But do they have the right levels of access to the data they need? And if not, why not? This session will present the case for and against.

Moderator: Jack Hardinges, Programme Lead – Data Institutions, Open Data Institute

Interviews with: Richard Emmott, Director of Corporate Affairs, Yorkshire Water; Marius Jennings, Project Manager, Bristol City Council.

This will be followed by a live Q&A session.
