The Government Data Science Festival is a fully digital event, which aims to bring together the data science community in the UK public sector.

The festival is delivered by the Government Data Science Partnership (GDSP) working together with members of the data science community across government and public sector in the UK.

The theme of this year’s festival is “Enabling the new normal: The role of data science in moving towards a post-COVID world”.

Colleagues across the public sector have worked together in recent months using data science techniques to support the UK government response to coronavirus (COVID-19). The festival will showcase some of this work.

There will be sessions throughout the week, with tickets available on a first-come, first-served basis. Registration is password protected.
