Championing innovation through Open Data

Phillippa championed the £50k Innovation and Jobs sector challenge for NESTA and the ODI as part of the wider Innovation Open Data Challenge series. This involved cultural intelligence, community building, advocacy. We also provided intensive coaching and mentoring to shortlisted applicants through-out the programme.

This Challenge and £50,000 prize was won by Performance in Context (PiC). PiC developed an algorithm to use open data to put academic attainment performance into context, enabling more informed student recruitment decisions, increasing access to university and jobs.
