Data Futures

Data Futures is a sector-wide transformation programme, led by HESA, with Jisc as the technical delivery partner and shaped by engagement from higher education providers.

Data Futures programme activity is continuing, with HESA and Jisc working closely with statutory customers to progress the programme in line with their requirements. Updates on the programme for sector contacts are planned between now and the summer. As with the data model release on 31 March, these updates will be for information only for the time being, and no action will be required by providers.

“Data Futures is a critically important project for the UK higher education sector, which will result in the transformation of the data collection and processing infrastructure and provision of timely, high-quality data for all stakeholders.”

Paul Clark, HESA CEO and Data Futures Senior Responsible Owner
