Learning Journey: Strata Data Conference, New York

The Data Lab, in collaboration with Scottish Development International (SDI), are delighted to support a limited number of places to attend the Strata Data Conference: Make Data Work in New York, taking place from 26 to 28 September 2017. Passes for the conference will be supplied by The Data Lab.

Strata Data Conference is a 3-day immersion in the most challenging problems, intriguing use cases, and enticing opportunities in data today. Leading minds in technology and business will take the stage to share their expertise and ideas, covering everything essential in data today. Strata Data Conference brings the data community together to explore compelling case studies, proven best practices, effective new analytic approaches, and exceptional skills.

The Data Lab is offering fully-paid passes for the event, and SDI is complementing the offer with a 30% travel & accommodation grant (please contact David Crossan at SDI for more details). In addition, we will organise a full visit program to include possible meetings and networking events with relevant organisations.

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.

To apply, please complete the enclosed application form and e-mail it to, with the subject “Strata New York Application” by 5pm on Friday 16 June 2017.
