Make Data Count is pleased to announce the Make Data Count Summit 2024, a two-day meeting dedicated to responsible data metrics and the evaluation of open data usage and impact.

The Make Data Count Summit 2024 will be held in London, UK on September 5-6 and will provide a forum for discussions about evidence-based data metrics and responsible assessment of open data. The Summit will bring together representatives of the research and policy communities, data administrators, funders, policymakers, publishers and infrastructure providers.

Our Make Data Count Summit in Washington last year highlighted that there are strong foundations for data metrics, but also a need to raise awareness and pursue conversations about data evaluation across sectors. By hosting this second Make Data Count Summit next September, we want to provide a dedicated venue for continued engagement with this topic. 

The event will incorporate facilitated discussions, panels and brainstorming sessions. The Make Data Count Summit will foster a common understanding of existing data metrics and their use, showcase developments in infrastructure and practices supporting data metrics, and engage groups across policy, research, and research-supporting organizations in the next steps toward evidence-based metrics and the meaningful assessment of research data.
