DataFest21 - DataSummit21

November 24, 2021, 09.30 – 17.30

DataSummit is an international conference presenting compelling stories on data innovation with keynotes, panels, pitches and lots of inspiration. Data Summit brings together data leaders and practitioners across industry, the public sector and academia. We strongly believe bringing these communities together to collaborate is a key ingredient towards data driven innovation beyond what is seen as possible now.

We are hoping and planning for a hybrid DataSummit21 with online and in-person elements – this is subject to government restrictions at the time of the event. If in-person events are possible in November 2021, some online early bird ticket holders will be given the opportunity to upgrade their ticket to an in-person one.

The theme of DataFest 2021 is #OurData. In previous DataFests, we have celebrated the individuals and teams driving data innovation in Scotland. This year, we are focusing on all of us – a community which can collect, create, and use our data for good. Throughout 2021 we will be exploring the theme of #OurData and the impact data has on people’s lives in the 21st Century. We’ll be tackling the big questions from the perspectives of #OurPlanet – covering the environment and climate change; #OurPeople – which covers all things social, including health and wellbeing; and #OurFuture – exploring the companies and technologies that will shape the decades to come. Each of these themed weeks will have a DataTech event, a DataTalent, and a variety of fringe events.

Please note: this early bird ticket is for the online element of DataSummit21 only.
