Breaking the Data Silos – AIHW & ANZSOG

March 27 @ 8:00 am - March 28 @ 5:00 pm

Data Silo

The volume of data recorded about our lives is increasing exponentially yet we are not getting any closer to the holy grail of evidence-based policy.

The Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) and the Australia and New Zealand School of Government (ANZSOG) are co-hosting a conference to gain a broader understanding of these important issues by:
 

  • bringing together the public sector, university and non-government sectors to explore the issues around effective data sharing and more open use of data. Any data that has the potential to improve people’s lives – whether from government, the private sector, or the community – could be subject to expert scrutiny and lively discussion.
     
  • challenging the participants to think more broadly about the hidden value of data sets, and the possibilities of gathering behavioural insights from the data to get a fuller picture. They will be asked to consider how we can go beyond growing capability in data analytics and create a growing spirit of knowledge sharing and collaboration around data in the ‘public purpose’ sector.
     
  • focusing on public policy challenges and the potential to use data to solve large and small problems in service delivery, will be a unique opportunity.
     
  • hearing from a broad cross section of experts who are brining practical examples in using data analytics, behavioural insights, and design thinking, as well as an overview of the strategic challenges.
