Digital Thursday

Creating the Future : in Education

19 November, 2020 | 12.15 | Virtual via Zoom

New for 2020, Digital Thursday is co-hosted by Newcastle University Business School, the Sphere Network and the Digital Growth Hub facilitating a monthly programme of in-depth Round Table and/or Online 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 2020 we have gone virtual and online.
