Creating value from data

Data plays a vital role in institutional management and for underpinning public accountability in higher education. The academic community, research funders, sector stakeholders and government are also making progress in the field of open research data.

Sir Ian Diamond’s report on Efficiency, Effectiveness and Value for Money highlights the sector’s commitment to sharing data, and considers how more value might be derived by opening data held within and outside the sector.

A ‘Creating value from open data’ project to explore the opportunities and challenges of open data in higher education is being taken forward by Universities UK in partnership with the National Union of StudentsJisc and the Open Data Institute.
