The Southern Policy Centre has been awarded the status of ODI Node for Hampshire

As a network node for the Open Data Institute our job will be to demonstrate the value of open data to public organisations, businesses, and interested citizens across Hampshire.

Our own focus will be on using open data to solve tricky public policy issues. The first major demonstrator project will be our research into why some areas of southern England are not seeing as high levels of participation in university as they should.

We’ll also be building a network and bringing together open data experts with public policy makers across a series of workshops and through ODI Membership.
