EIT Digital Innovation Day 2019 Glasgow

11th December 2019 @ 12:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Join EIT Digital in Glasgow for their Innovation Day 2019 where we will be exploring safeguarding health through data analytics.

Is Scotland leading a Digital Wellness revolution?

Despite being one of the world’s richest countries, the UK has living standards driven down by poor health and fitness performing poorly in a recent index for Global wellness. While the data is not granular enough to identify Scotland’s place in this index we have regularly scored poorly for metrics like life expectancy when compared to our European partners.

EIT Digital believe that investment in research and innovation in the Digital Wellbeing space will pay dividends in terms of individuals standard of life and Scotland is already making great strides in this area. Leading experts and stakeholders will gather in Scotland to discuss the exciting progress currently taking place in Scotland.
