Governance & Strategic Planning

Data Governance Group

The University Data Governance Group ensures we adopt a consistent approach to the governance of the corporate data that we create and use.

In doing so, the group:

  • Oversees definition of the structures, data models, data definitions and processes needed to underpin a consistent approach to data governance

  • Provides templates, guidance and recommendations on best practice data governance within the University of Edinburgh

As part of this remit, the group engages with the data governance related aspects to Service Excellence and Digital Tranformation projects.
