Australia’s publicly funded data positioning us as a leader
In Australia’s current economy, skills, knowledge and new ideas are our country’s most valuable asset. Keeping ahead of economic change requires a new approach to data and research that brings together strong policies with essential infrastructure and cultural change.
To celebrate its ten year anniversary, the Population Health Research Network (PHRN) has brought together six speakers to address the important issues surrounding the future of Australia’s publicly funded data. The themes for the afternoon are impact, trust and innovation in the use of Australia’s publicly funded data.
In the first session, Nicholas Gruen, Lateral Economics Chief Executive Officer, and Ellen Broad, independent consultant in data standards, infrastructure, policy and governance will tackle the topic of impact and what we should use Australia’s publicly funded date for. In our next session Carolyn Adams, Senior Lecturer at Macquarie Law School, together with Professor Braunack-Mayer, bioethicist and public health researcher will delve into issues of trust and who we trust to use our data.
Wrapping up the afternoon, the New South Wales Chief Scientist, Hugh Durrant-Whyte and Terry Sweeney, Managing Director, IBM Watson Health will discuss the topic of innovation and how we should use Australia’s publicly funded data. Hosted by Robyn Williams, AM, legendary science presenter, journalist and author, this afternoon will have you informed and stimulated in discussion on Australia's Data Future.
