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.

Wear a Christmas jumper and donate

We're taking part in Save the Children's Christmas Jumper Day on Wednesday 14 December as part of the conference. By pulling on our Christmassy knits and donating, we'll be helping mums and babies stay healthy, and giving them the chance of the future they deserve.
