Jack Hardinges

Programme Lead, Open Data Institute

Jack Hardinges is Programme Lead for Data Institutions at the Open Data Institute. He leads the ODI’s work to explore different approaches to data stewardship, such as through data trusts, and leading the delivery of related projects. Jack joined the ODI in July 2014 and has worked with startup, multinational corporate and government clients. Recently, this work has been focused on involving the public, patients and other stakeholders in the stewardship of health data, and the flows of data between cities and private sector organisations.

At SHIFT 2020, Jack will talk about the difference between dynamic and static data, the value of that data for innovative businesses and the role of legislation and big companies. How can cooperation and co-creation models be created from the perspective of the startup, the corporate and the government? And how can privacy of users be safeguarded in the process?


SHIFT’s climate partner Chooose has agreed to offset the speaker’s CO2 emissions for six months, including their participation to SHIFT 2020.
