About OCS

The new Observatory for a Connected Society is the culmination of many months’ work between Corsham Institute and RAND Europe. It extends our Thought Leadership programme and helps us to continue to build a community of interest in all things digital. We’re really excited about the app’s potential, and this is just the start. We will continue to develop the platform together adding new functionality and features.

As an indispensable resource, it provides the most important research, analysis and thinking from leading experts on the opportunities and challenges of our digital society in one place for the first time.

It includes:

  • Authoritative, curated news and research, for example reports from World Bank, Nesta, Demos, Open Data Institute and World Economic Forum.
  • Analysis and insights based on the latest evidence, case studies and data from RAND Europe.
  • Details of the most important upcoming events, conferences, consultations and other activities.
