Northernlands Summit Schedule
The Northernlands Data & Startup Summit promises to be a thought-provoking and engaging day, carefully curated to shatter the expectations of data so that different potential futures can be explored. The afternoon will provide an opportunity to take part in one of three different 'tracks' (or all three if you feel adventurous) - citizens and data; ethics and trust within data; and data demonstrations and real world applications.
