Data Matters conference 5 May 2020 - cancelled

After careful consideration and because of the ongoing and unpredictable developments around coronavirus (COVID-19), this year's Data Matters conference on 5 May in London will not go ahead.

For delegates who have already paid for their ticket, all conference fees will be fully refunded. Further information on refunds will be shared in the next few days.

We are currently looking at whether we can reschedule Data Matters to a future date or alternative virtual ways we can share the great content we had planned. We will be in touch with further updates about this. Once again, we are very sorry for the inconvenience that cancelling Data Matters may cause. If you have any questions, please email [email protected].

If you're interested in Graduate Outcomes, attendance to Data Matters is a must! With the 17/18 data and Official Statistics delivered by May 2020, through a keynote, break outs and a workshop, we will be exploring the background of the survey and its methodology, the uses of this data, how we expect the graduate labour market to evolve and the data and evidence that HE providers will need to effectively support their students and graduates.

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."

The conference 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 one-day conference to discuss the topical issues around data and its use in shaping the future of education.
