Government extends consultation on National Data Strategy

The Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport has extended its consultation on its National Data Strategy by a week to 11:45pm on December 9.

The aim of the National Data Strategy (NDS) is to "drive the collective vision that will support the UK to build a world-leading data economy".

This includes how data can help support the transport and logistics sectors, as well as local government.

The consultation was launched during London Tech Week 2020 to explore whether or not the strategy appropriately reflects the opportunities and challenges of our hyper-digital world and considers all relevant priorities, potential trade-offs and decisions.

The consultation seeks to ensure that the framework strategy has set the right overall direction and approach.

It also seeks to ensure that the strategy’s missions, associated areas of focus, and policy proposals have received proper scrutiny and input.

The government’s response to the consultation, which will be published in early 2021, will be based on "careful consideration of all submitted responses".

Interested parties that would like to take part in the consultation can respond online or email [email protected].
