REGIONAL INNOVATION DATA LAB (RIDL)
Our world is becoming increasingly data driven. In the business sector we see big and small organisations collecting and harnessing data to inform decision making and track progress, and at the citizen level we see individuals becoming more data driven in their consumption and social behaviours. As a result, there is an expectation that our governments will follow suit and use data to drive their decision-making processes.
The Regional Innovation Data Lab (RIDL) provides data-insights to policy makers to create and/or evaluate policy implementations. Many government policies have impacts outside of the implementing departments’ jurisdiction and require additional data and insights not collected or easily accessible by the department. The RIDL is well positioned to address this need for holistic data collection and analysis. By combining public and private data sets RIDL and our partners provide a valuable and inclusive foundation from which policy makers derive data driven insights to inform public policy.
