On 21st of September, Anya, together with James Goulding and Georgiana Nica-Avram from N/Lab at University of Nottingham, presented to the Spatial Unit at Levelling Up Department on Shopping Data and Inequalities. The slides can be found here. The talk was attended by about 20 colleagues from the Spatial Unit. We received a lot of interesting and insightful questions, and after the talk had a long chat with Tom Smith, the director of the unit and Chief Data Officer for Levelling Up department. Looking forward to future collaborations with them!
On the same day, Anya and James had a workshop with Merve Alanyali and Allison Sheard at LV= who has strong links with University of Bristol and supports innovative research ideas in digital economy space. There seems to be a lot of overlap in our thinking on innovation with data, and we plan further meetings with wider team soon.
