  Private sectors’ expectation on creating new business by utilizing the pre-exist data and interdisciplinary data, is getting higher day by day. In addition, both Public and Academic sectors are concentrating on the provision of platform and environment which could take advantage of the diversity of knowledge and values extracted from the data, toward data-driven society.
  However, there are still significant obstacles to obtaining information of data itself, because of the privacy and individual recognition issues. Furthermore, not only information about data, but also related knowledge, such as the analysis methods or utilization of data, is not in available form as well. In our IEL, as a part of the development of knowledge sharing and data management for policy making and decision making toward data-driven society, we hold the progress report of Student Initiative Project (SIP) and Review Session on the data utilization methodology using the form of the workshop. First half of the SIP report will introduce the visualization of societal impact and assessment methodology over Academic researches, processed from the REF data (the social report of Research Excellence Framework of UK cases in 2014) in the UK. Later half will be a gamified workshop for discussing the social issues and possible combinations of data/tools among participants (Innovators Marketplace on Data Jackets). As inviting the students and personnel outside of the IEL group and GSDM, participant of this IEL would be expected to draw out the interdisciplinary social issue and, hopefully, discuss the possible solutions. The methodology has already proved its effectiveness with achievements in various fields. Thus, this IEL workshop will benefit not only the participants of this IEL but also the GSDM program itself.
