Data value: to share, or not to share

Join

Welcome to our expert series on the post-COVID reset. That is, a reset along a more inclusive and smart path. The series introduces listeners to leading thinkers as they debate concrete policy options for such a recovery and take stock of the data that could (and should) inform these policy shifts. 

 

This podcast is concerned with the value of data, focusing particularly on ways to capture and to (re)distribute such value.

 

The expert is Diane Coyle. She is the Bennett Professor of Public Policy at the University of Cambridge, director of the Productivity Institute, fellow of the UK Office for National Statistics, and former member of the UK Digital Competition Expert Panel. These roles and the rich expertise Diane brings are central to this discussion.

 

The host is UNESCO’s Iulia Sevciuc.

 

Thread 1 talks about data value, breaking down what is meant by it, why it matters, and how good (or not) we are – on both the analytical and policy sides – at capturing such value. 

 

Thread 2 is on the need and the concrete ways of distributing the value of data amongst all actors involved in its co-creation. It discusses, in particular, whether/what “share” of that monetary and non-monetary value should flow back to both governments and individuals.  

 

Thread 3 goes to the heart of what the UNESCO Inclusive Policy Lab does – connecting knowledge and data to policy on the ground. It tackles these in relation to data itself (i.e., data as an area of knowledge and of policy action), outlining key analytical gaps and policy recommendations.
