Webinar addresses importance of data during global crisis

May 26, 2020

EIT and Re-Leased will be hosting a free webinar on Friday, 5 June 2020, 10 am to 12 pm, called “COVID-19 – The importance of data for business”.

This webinar will address the crucial role of accessible data in the event of a global crisis. “The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic presents many questions and also opportunities. How we recover and respond in the future will be driven by the data we collect along the way,” believes Dr Tom Hartley, senior lecturer at EIT’s School of Computing who will be leading the presentation.

There will be four 30-minute sessions (including Q&As).
