DataFest is back for 2021 and we’ll be starting the year off with a fantastic free virtual event on the 25th of March
We will have a speaker addressing climate change and a discussion panel that will set the scene for our three themed DataFest weeks – #OurFuture, #OurPeople and #OurPlanet. The event will also confirm the final schedule for Data Tech, Data Talks, and Data Talent events through 2021.
Our theme that links the events in the DataFest 2021 programme 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.
DataFest21 will run from March to November 2021. As well as the launch event, there will be three themed weeks of DataFest activities throughout the year, and the festival will culminate with Data Summit.
