Why I’m part of DataJam West Midlands

A number of organisations will come together at our DataJam West Midlands event on the 11-12 September to discuss and tackle some of the biggest challenges that people in the region face in the areas of skills, employability, and digital competence.

Aimed at professionals and practitioners at all levels of experience, the event will bring together subject matter experts, policy experts, analysts, strategists, and researchers, from organisations across the West Midlands to share their experiences, and work collaboratively to provide solutions to the challenge.

Creating prototypes and collaborating on design

The event is built upon the success of last year’s DataJam North East, which helped form a network of people with a shared interest in effective use of data and collaborative design; working towards creating prototypes and solutions to help us make lasting improvements to people’s lives.
