The Data Futures Partnership has been busy working with project teams to get grant agreements in place for our exciting new catalysts. These are data innovation projects focused on tackling real world problems.
You can access the full list of projects with grant agreements in place here (external link) .
The projects are working across a range of sectors and cover topics including housing and families, business support, and measuring social outcomes. Each project must provide matched funding and demonstrate the value of data use. We anticipate that the benefits will be wide ranging and provide a better evidence base for spending decisions, improved access to information, and increased accountability and transparency.

We will be working closely with the projects to capture the learning and work with them to overcome any challenges they encounter. Aside from the benefits generated from each project, the Partnership hopes to harness greater value from them by using what we learn to trigger more data innovation in the future. As the projects develop, we will continue to keep you updated
