Health Data Research UK and the UK Health Data Research Alliance were delighted to welcome participants from across the UK and worldwide to our second Symposium on 1 December.

The virtual format meant that more than 500 people signed up to join the event from across the health data science community, including the NHS, industry, universities, charities, government, patients and the public, with speakers from as far afield as the west coast of the US and Thailand.

This year has accelerated changes and conversations that were already starting to take place in health data science, including ever greater reliance on digital technologies and connectivity, and a sharper focus on ensuring that everyone in the population is represented in health data research and can benefit from it. The Symposium showcased work from across the health data science community, in particular from the Alliance, Health Data Research Hubs, and Innovation Gateway. Find out more in our event report.
