DataTalent21 – #OurPeople

September 8 @ 12:00 pm - 5:30 pm

#DataFest21 Data Talent #OurData
Scotland’s largest data talent showcase


DataTalent is Scotland’s largest data talent showcase. ​At Data Talent Scotland, students can land their dream job and employers can recruit their ideal candidate. ​

DataTalent focuses on developing the skills Scotland’s data talent need to help achieve Scotland’s data-driven future prosperity, and helping organisations access that talent. ​

Activities throughout the day include speakers demonstrating their innovative data science projects, skills workshops, panel discussions, recruiting company showcases and plenty of structured and unstructured networking time. ​

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.

You can purchase tickets for an individual DataTalent or all three for a discounted price.

Please note: the third and final DataTalent event will be on the 23rd of November, not in the OurPlanet week.
