Digital Launch Event

Date: Thursday 09 March 2017

This event marks the launch of the University-wide theme on the topic of Digital. The day will bring together academics and industrial partners working on a variety of topics relevant for this theme. Please register to attend - the event is free of charge. 

Why attend?

From the sciences to the humanities, our digital research and education draws on the collision of sensors, data, connectivity, computing power, automation, virtual reality and analytics to create knowledge and innovations at scale.  This event will showcase the application of our digital expertise and the facilities at the University of Liverpool, whilst stimulating engagement and debate on how working with our specialist centres (profiled below) can directly benefit you. There will be the opportunity for companies to promote their expertise via pitches and to discuss the development of working partnerships with relevant specialists from the University and beyond.
