The Innovations in Applied Data Symposium was held on Thursday 3 June 2021 at Te Papa in Wellington and online. It was an opportunity to share what’s being done with data in Aotearoa New Zealand.
The symposium was open to anybody working in the collection, management, analysis or access to applied data, from government, non-government and academic environments.
Three keynote speakers focussed on collaborative ways to use Aotearoa’s cutting-edge data for the good of our communities. With over 50 quickfire presentations throughout the day, it was an opportunity to share work and meet others working in similar fields. The final panel discussion focussed on the future of applied data in Aotearoa and what will be required to realise the potential of our rich information resources.
An archive with abstracts and recordings of the talks, and contact information for experts in various fields, is available at: terourou.org/symposium/.
This event was hosted by the Informatics for Social Services and Wellbeing Programme with support from Healthier Lives, Victoria University of Wellington, The University of Auckland and the Social Wellbeing Agency.
