This week we met with the Intelligence Unit at the GLA to discuss The Way Ahead vision and look at how data about, and produced by civil society in London, can be included in their City Data Strategy developments.
We have also been working on our short survey to capture What Good Looks Like in relation to sharing and collaborating on data, and the Data Challenges that organisations are facing in terms of accessing and analysing data. Watch out for this next week!
We discussed open data learning resources with the Open Data Institute - they have some courses online including Open Data in a Day, and have also developed OctoPub - a tool to help people publish open data quickly and easily. This leads nicely on to the very well attended Data themed NetSquared London meetup on Weds, with speakers from the ODI, Beehive Giving and DataKind UK.
Next week we are meeting with Locality (who are leading on the Fair Commissioning and Funding task and finish group), at the London Funders and 360 Giving Showcase event, meeting with Children England, Greater London Volunteering, at the Networked City event and speaking to NICVA and NCVO!
Finally - here's a survey capturing good examples of Co-production by our colleague leading on this The Way Ahead task and finish group.
