Annual symposium 2017- ‘Health Wealth and Stealth’

13 September 2017

Promoting cross-sectoral knowledge transfer. This year’s symposium is focused on promoting knowledge transfer across sectors, with innovation in mind. We see many sector specific events through the year. Sometimes it’s difficult for professionals to break out of their own specialist sector and they are condemned to closed conversations with like-mined people. Yet there is evidence that innovation happens on boundaries, where a lesson identified ‘there’ can be applied ‘here’. We have chosen the moniker ‘health, wealth and stealth’ to look specifically across public and private sector contexts, as well as the broader issues of stealth, from privacy to surveillance.

This year our panels will have key spekers from different sectors. We’ll be encouraging our speakers to discuss their key challenges and the ways they effectively address them. Of course we will also see sectoral differences and we’ll look for what this means for how we train, prepare and educate in a profession which desires to be coherent, across a diverse range of contexts. We hope that this innovative approach will in itself spark innovation. We also plan to run our usual poster competition for universities and businesses who wish to showcase their current research and projects.

The symposium includes:

  • Opening and closing keynote speakers
