The community exists to bring together people across the public sector with an interest in data science and its opportunities.

The community is open to public sector employees only, so please sign up with your official work email address. Signing up with a personal or non-public sector email address may result in your subscription being removed. If you are not sure if you are eligible, please get in touch with us for advice. 
We also recommend you join the Gov Data Science Slack network. There are lots of active conversations across a wide range of topics related to data science, analytics and artificial intelligence.
