Northernlands Data and Startup Summit
A 1-day summit that brought together the people who are creating the data economy to explore the diversity, untapped value, and potential for innovation. Artists, activists, organisations, businesses, data scientists, strategists, citizens - we all have something to gain from innovation with data but we can all do something to contribute as well. The Northernlands was a unique opportunity to explore the 'art of the possible' when we work together, think openly, and creatively respond to the challenges we face.
