Fringe Events: 11 to 22 March 2019
Across Scotland

DataFest19 is all about doing #DataTogether. We believe that collaboration between different industry sectors and disciplines, academics, data practitioners, students, public sector, and business specialists is a key element towards data driven innovation.


The DataFest19 Fringe programme.

The DataFest19 Fringe programme aims to support collaboration through a series of events across Scotland exploring, hacking and debating data innovation. Events can include meetups, hackathons, debates, workshops, training programmes and any innovative activities focused on data innovation.

We would like to invite you to submit an event proposal for the opportunity to be included in our Fringe programme for DataFest19.


How to Apply?

Proposals are welcome from anyone who has an interest in data within Scotland. This includes but is not restricted to those in leadership or technical roles from industry, public sector, academia or wider data community. Target audiences can also be as broad as you’d like, from technical experts, to business professionals, to general public and school kids. If you would like to connect with communities in other sectors or geographical areas, get in touch, and we might be able to help.
