Digital Thursday

Lockdown and Digital Health – leadership insights and innovation from the front-line

16 July, 2020 | 12.30 | Virtual via Zoom

New for 2020, Digital Thursday combines the resources of both the Sphere Network and Newcastle Business School facilitating a monthly programme of in-depth Round Table events.

Our permanent home at the Business School supported by the University’s Pitch-In Project: IoT – Smart Cities and the Institute of Coding is aimed in resolving problems through digital solutions and collaboration, irrespective of their industry sector.

Digital Thursday enables shared knowledge and access to new networks and opportunities with influence across the North East of England and beyond. Tackling the challenges we face, in confidential settings, past evidence shows that unexpected collaboration opportunities arise.

Digital Thursday is free to attend and open to businesses, academics and students but as seats are extremely limited, we do ask that you to sign requesting a seat at the table via the Eventbrite link.

N.B. From June we will be going virtual and online throughout 2020.

Digital Thursday is hosted and facilitated by the Business School, Newcastle University and the Sphere Network with collaborative support from the Institute of Coding at Newcastle University and the Digital Growth Hub.
