UK Research and Innovation has initiated a programme to consult on the requirements for a UK-wide federated, digital infrastructure for sensitive data research that has the confidence, and meets the needs of researchers, data controllers, and the public. 

As part of the first phase of this work we will be running a programme of Sprint Exemplar Projects. These projects will provide an exciting opportunity to bid for funding to carry out a process of uncovering and testing early thinking and developing potential use cases, technical proof-of-concepts as well as exploring the governance, ethical and public engagement and involvement aspects of developing a next generation of Digital Research Infrastructure based on trustworthiness, security, and interoperability.

This event will launch this competition and be an opportunity to find out more about the requirements of these sprint projects and how to apply.

The BCS Digital Cardiology course is the first event of its kind for UK cardiologists at all career stages, offering insights into a truly new era of cardiology research and practice.

In a one day-programme (usually held at the British Cardiovascular Society in London), this novel course covers wide-ranging topics from social media and e-cardiology, to genomics and machine learning, with both interactive talks and panel discussions – presented by leading figures in cardiovascular medicine.

The culmination to the cardiovascular year will review the biggest and most relevant topics of the past 12 months. This year the course will follow a revised format for virtual delivery but will remain a must-attend for consultants and cardiology trainees who wish to keep up to date on advances in cardiology. There will also be a live Q&A session posing questions to the expert panel.
