With data and technology so prominent in the global response to COVID-19, panellists will share their views on what they've learned over the past year and how innovation deployed in combating a health crisis could be used across multiple sectors to improve not only the delivery of services, but also how they are valued by communities. The panellists will share examples of UK and global good practice and will discuss the barriers that currently impede smart, data-led local decision making for Government and businesses.
