Join our guests, Pye Nyunt and Tim Pearse from the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham, talking about how they apply data science and behavioural science to tackle some of the borough’s social problems. They will then reflect on how service design can complement their practices with Clive Grinyer and two of our students, Emilia D’Orazio and Saumya Singhal, who partnered with Pye and Tim on their project AcrosSilos - developing joined up approaches in the borough to support vulnerable children and families.
