About this Event

Local services rely on data to make effective decisions, but managing the pandemic demands new approaches and different data sources, to follow developments, maintain and prioritise services, track infection, assess public behaviour and compliance with restrictions, and find and help the most vulnerable.

In this webinar we will talk to local government data leads

  • what data is critical right now
  • how to improve data-sharing and management in a crisis
  • and how to use data to plan for social and economic recovery.


  • Nicola Mallett, Head of Profession for Data and Analytics, Essex County Council
  • Eddie Copeland, Director of the London Office of Technology and Innovation (LOTI)
  • Ben Hawes, Associate Director, Connected Places Catapult
