National Data Strategy Roundtables

The Departments for International Trade (DIT), Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS), Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC) are coming together to run a series of Business Engagement Roundtables to provide evidence for DCMS’ National Data Strategy.

We invite you to take this opportunity to shape the National Data Strategy (NDS) for yourselves. We consider this a valuable chance to ensure the new strategy reflects your genuine needs and enables your business to thrive and determine the future of a data-driven economy.

The aim of the NDS is to drive the collective vision that will support the UK to build a world-leading data economy. It will ensure that all citizens and organisations trust the data ecosystem, are sufficiently skilled to operate effectively within it, and can access high-quality data when they need it.

The NDS focuses on 6 proposed objectives, detailed in DCMS’ Open Call for Evidence, grouped under People, Economy and Government. This series of roundtables will be an opportunity to consult private sector businesses on how the NDS can encourage participation in a data-driven UK economy.

For this, we will concentrate on answering the NDS’s 2 core objectives for people and the economy to ensure that:

  • data is used in a way that people can trust
  • everyone can effectively participate in an increasingly data-driven society
  • all businesses and non-profit organisations can effectively participate in an increasingly data-driven economy
  • growth and productivity are improved through the better use and availability of data across the economy
