Digital technologies offer enormous potential for every aspect of our society and economy.

By bringing together a wide range of speakers and attendees from enterprise, civil society, public bodies, academia and the public, the Data Summit will stimulate a discussion on data and digital technologies 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!
