Joined up thinking for data access

Collaborations across industry, charity and NHS to support cutting edge R&D

The BIA, AMRC and LifeArc are delighted to announce a joint event on collaborating for data access, taking a cross-sector view of the current challenges faced, and highlighting successful case studies to enable a more joined up approach to data access for R&D in the UK. We aim to:

  • Bring together industry, charity and healthcare leadership to improve cross-sector understanding
  • Highlight examples of successful cross-sector data collaborations
  • Discuss further opportunities to address challenges

There will also be opportunities to network during and after the event over refreshments.

This event will be free to attend, priority will be given to those in industry, charities and the NHS who are actively working on accessing, providing and using data – please email [email protected] with any queries.
