This expert discussion is part of the Scotsman’s Data Driven Innovation series.

The panel will explore how important is it for companies to develop a culture which promotes growth through data and encourages the development of new and existing talent within their organisations. The debate will place data skills in a wider context and consider how important they are in enabling companies in Scotland to embrace the data opportunity:

Why is data key to Scotland’s future economic growth and how do we ensure broad adoption and data innovation across all sectors?
What needs to be done to address the digital skills gap to develop a diverse and globally competitive talent pool, and research infrastructure that contributes more to the Scottish economy?
What are the key data challenges that are facing businesses on the ground and how can these be overcome?
