Call for Applications: Summer School on Data and the 4th Industrial Revolution

From 15th -19th June 2020 Imperial College London will host the 1st trilateral Global Fellows Programme in partnership with the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and the Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore).


ACADEMIC THEME: HEALTH DATA AND TECHNOLOGY FOR SOCIETY

In the current scientific environment international collaborations and networking are the basis for developing successful projects. In a competitive research environment funding is increasingly drawn to interdisciplinary, collaborative research with partners from around the world. The modern researcher requires both excellence in research and professional skills and competencies.

With the boom of the 4th industrial revolution, big data have become central to various transactions, including health technology. How these data are analysed, synthesized, and propagated has an impact beyond the lab or clinic to society at large. Participants will discuss and develop intercultural, interdisciplinary and intersectoral discussions and approaches to handle and use data to improve health and society, how to communicate about health technologies to the public, and how data can improve the quality of life for all citizens. A range of guest speakers will provide participants with case studies to open discussions.

A background on the subject is not essential, doctoral candidates from any discipline are invited to apply.

This is a chance to challenge yourself outside of your normal working environment, meet people from other disciplines and cultures, and have fun!
