2023 Theme & Topics

THEME: Data Inc

Data Inc looks at how universities can fully utilise their data collection and usage. For better or worse, the private sector seems to understand why it is collecting data and the need to collect info they don’t yet know they have a need for. The private sector is also very creative in the ways it monetises this data and services; Twitter’s plans to charge for verification come to mind. While universities should not try to monetise their data collection, they could be using it to meet their strategic ROI, whether that means in community engagement, research grants and output among others.
