State of the Art: Big and Open Data

Thu 22 Feb 2018 | 9am-12.30pm | FREE | LJMU Faculty of Engineering & Technology | Liverpool


This event will bring together SMEs from the Liverpool City Region to hear from business and academic experts about the potential for business growth from accessing big and open data, alongside the commercial services and academic expertise available for managing them.


It will also give you the opportunity to network over the implications of these technology areas and to input into the design and content of future events within the LCR Activate project.


Our ‘State of the Art’ event series looks to demonstrate not just the cutting edge of technological realms, but to showcase the numerous direct, easily-accessible competitive advantages to be gained from employing them.
