Funding opportunity to attend international events

After a very succesful learning trip to New York in December, The Data Lab in collaboration with Scottish Development International (SDI) is supporting a limited number of places to attend 2 international events in 2016. The Data Lab is offering 8 fully-paid passes for each event, and SDI is complementing the offer with travel and accommodation support for a maximum of 5 nights in-market.


More information on each of the events, including speakers, agenda and other activities can be found in the following links:

Big Data & Analytics Innovation Summit – “Making Your Data Actionable”

Strata + Hadoop World “ “Make Data Work”

There will additional meetings and activities organized around these events, which will be announced closer to the date. Applicants should make sure they are available to travel for a whole work week (Monday to Friday) for each event, in order to participate in the full programme of activities, including the conference and aditional meetings (Monday 29 February to Friday 4 March for Singapore; and Monday 28 March to Friday 1 April for San Jose).

Companies should note that places are limited and these will be allocated based on the relevance for both the applying organisation and their representative. This Learning Journey is targeted at senior leaders at CTO level or equivalent. Applications will be assessed with regard to their fit with the objectives of the Learning Journey and their ability to derive benefits / insights for Scotland from their participation. Participating companies will also need to commit to a post-event survey regarding outcomes delivered.
