Data Matters is not just for data professionals, but also for higher education practitioners and professional services staff working in areas such as strategic planning, academia, student experience, careers and quality.

Over 240 delegates attended the 2019 Data Matters conference, positively responding to the event:

"The Data Matters event brought together a diverse and interesting group of presenters and delegates for a valuable knowledge sharing exchange."

"Offers the opportunity to network and get insights across the 'data' community."

Data Matters is jointly run by Jisc, HESA and QAA, who are the UK’s higher education digital, data and quality experts. This partnership brings these three perspectives together in a two-day conference to discuss the topical issues around data and its use in shaping the future of higher education.
