We now feel we are coming to the end of our trawl of data sources, platforms and tools and conversations with various stakeholders.
This week has seen interesting conversations about data pipelines with Data Unity, finding out more about borough data observatories - platforms they use and the current London Borough Data Partnership & London Office of Data Analytics pilot, and reading the report and social sector data maturity framework just published by the Data Evolution project.
We are currently developing a short survey to send out to stakeholders to further identify their data challenges and also data they hold which they could themsleves share.
We still have further meetings - phone & in person, booked in the next couple of weeks with the ODI, GLA, NICVA and a slot at the London Funder's 360 Giving Showcase - but towards the end of the month, we'll be starting to draw together our findings and recommendations for the report.
In addition, and for those with an interest in civil society and data, the next NetSquared London meet up on Feb 15th has a data theme and we are also planning a Data learning day with LVSC in March.
Finally - here's our data / civil society bookmark list!
