In this digital age, the amount of data being collected and processed is ever increasing. The Government has introduced a new Data Protection Bill to ensure our data protection laws are fit for purpose and to help empower people to take control of their data and support UK businesses and organisations through the change.
In this meeting we will discuss some of the ways in which UK research and innovation are utilising the vast quantities of data available, how this should be governed and monitored and how the public are dealing with the questions ethical and social issues raised in the use of personal data.
