Cancer Data Dive

15-18 June 2017

CodeBase, 38 Castle Terrace, Edinburgh, EH3 9SJ

Product Forge and the Cancer Innovation Challenge are running an open cancer "data dive" event at CodeBase in Edinburgh from Thursday 15th to Sunday 18th June 2017.

Entrepreneurially minded data scientists and analysts, clinicians, designers, and software engineers will spend 3 days and 3 nights side by side developing data focused projects to improve cancer care in the NHS in Scotland.

Participants form small cross-functional teams to work on a product prototype with support from subject matter experts and the wider technology community. You will have access to synthetic cancer data sets to work with which, include synthetic version of the cancer registry, acute admissions, prescribing information and National Records Scotland deaths.

Whether you already have an idea that you would like to prototype or you would just like to make new connections, we invite you to come along and meet talented people with a shared interest in innovation in cancer care.

Use this opportunity to develop your career, gain new skills, network with professionals, meet potential employers or even kick-start your own company.

All our participants receive mentoring, 10 free meals and 24 hour access to the venue, and the top ranking teams can access support to develop their concept beyond the event, including further access to NHS experts and data.

Thank you to event sponsors MBN Solutions, SBNN, Medic Footprints, R Studio, Github, StartEdin and .XYZ.
