What to expect
The last few years have demonstrated the enormous power of data to advance medical knowledge and deliver radical improvements to people’s lives. Treatments, vaccines and life-saving policies have all been delivered in record time thanks to large-scale data, advanced analytics and innovative developments in data governance.
Health Data Research UK’s annual scientific conference will be a free one-day, event to celebrate this progress and allow us to come together and build momentum in the health data research revolution. It will feature:
- Keynote talks from internationally leading figures across the health data research sector
- Interactive panel discussions to share learnings from the rapid progress made as a result of COVID-19, and discuss how this can be harnessed to transform global health and society, with a focus on making sure no groups are excluded
- Awards for excellence in health data research
- Opportunities to engage and collaborate with members of the scientific community, industry, patients and the public.
