Digital technologies offer enormous potential for every aspect of our society and economy. They are already at the heart of how we go about our daily lives and we are all generating and using ever greater volumes of personal data.  By bringing together a wide range of attendees from enterprise, civil society, public bodies, academia and the public, the Data Summit will stimulate a far-reaching and inclusive discussion on the role of data in modern society.

The time is right for this discussion and as the Digital Capital of Europe, Ireland is the right place for this discussion to happen.

We look forward to seeing you there!
