*Reflections from past conferences:*

“Data for Policy provides a unique opportunity to have a dialogue across
many disciplinary boundaries, it’s a forum in which we can ask questions
and move collectively towards solutions, we can share methods. I think it’s

Professor Anthony Finkelstein, Chief Scientific Advisor for National
Security to the UK Government – Data for Policy 2016

“This is the beginning of the dialogue that really needs to happen between
policy makers and data scientists, so that they don’t find themselves
warring with each other, but instead try to cooperate and move together to
protect both the subjects of Big Data analysis and the ability to use this
data to better inform policy and government.”

Professor Jim Waldo, Chief Technology Officer, Harvard University – Data
for Policy 2016

“It’s fantastic to come here and take the temperature of what’s going on in
this field and hopefully out of this we can begin to look ahead and see
where the new connections are going to be made between ideas and data

David Mair, Head of Unit at the Joint Research Centre of the European
Commission –  Data for Policy 2016

“It is the first time I have had the opportunity to take part in this type
of discussion – getting a sense of where political thinking is and where
academic thinking is. Forums like this can provide the thought leadership
that is necessary in this area.”

John Sheridan, Head of Legislation Services, UK National Archives – Data
for Policy 2015
