Truro, Cornwall UK

Explore, demonstrate and discuss ongoing activities in the UK and EU on connecting big data on environment and human health, particularly focusing on lessons learned, areas for collaboration and interconnection, and future challenges and opportunities.

With funding from the MRC and NERC, we are hosting a Workshop on Connecting Big Data in Environment and Human Health on June 26 in Cornwall (UK).  We hope to bring together academic, government and business people actively involved in this area who are interested in sharing their experience and seeking out possible collaborations.

The idea of the Workshop is to explore, demonstrate and discuss ongoing activities in the UK and EU on connecting big data on environment and human health, particularly focusing on lessons learned, areas for collaboration and interconnection, and future challenges and opportunities. All sessions will be attended by all participants.  The initial session will feature Key Note Speakers from academia, business, government, and the third sector, followed by invited panelists discussing: 1) examples of current Big Data Resources/Collaborations, and 2) lessons learned and other challenges.  The majority of the Session time will be devoted to participant discussions and interactions. There will also be opportunities for exhibits/displays and networking interactions.

A draft agenda and draft description of the Workshop are attached below.
