The Data-Driven Innovation (DDI) initiative, part of the Edinburgh & South east Scotland City Region Deal, is at the heart of efforts to tackle global challenges - collecting, analysing and drawing insights from data to create better futures for us all.
This conference is a joint venture between The Scotsman and DDI, bringing together experts from a range of fields.
It builds on the two previous events, which focused on ethics (DOING DATA RIGHT) and collaboration (DOING DATA TOGETHER) and examines how we are harnessing that ethical, collaborative approach - and DOING DATA BETTER as a result.
The event is built around four big themes: data and climate change; data and future pandemics; data and tourism and economic recovery; and data and social/financial inclusion.
The event will also feature short video presentations from specific research projects using data to support efforts to build back better after the pandemic.
