Event Details

Innovation Opportunity of the GDPR for Digital Manufacturing Workshop

Digital Catapult is committed to supporting, learning from and bringing together emerging businesses, researchers and other innovators across the personal data landscape. We are coordinating a series of workshops*, a forum and a showcase** that highlight the Innovation Opportunities that will be present in the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which comes into effect on 25 May 2018. The event series will also take into consideration the UK's new Data Protection Bill. This workshop will be focused on digital manufacturing and will be facilitated by Digital Catapult Centre Yorkshire. In addition, there will be a further two workshops focused on artificial intelligence and machine learning, and on media.


Who Should Attend?

  • We are inviting a range of startups, scale-ups and established businesses innovating in digital manufacturing that are:

    • Already GDPR-compliant and can add to the conversation directly about their experience

    • Know about GDPR and are working towards compliance and exploring the viability of certain tools and approaches

    • Academics and researchers involved in digital manufacturing and, or data protection who can discuss the work they are developing about challenges and opportunities

  • Data Protection Officers or senior management involved in the organisation’s business development and strategy, with a 

    maximum of two people per organisation.


Why Attend?

  • The workshop will provide significant opportunities for businesses to gain insight, adapt and develop their products, services and proposition for consumers, well before the Regulation comes into effect.
  • It will also relate best practice and enable participants to share learning and apply research that’s already being undertaken, including assessing potential impact of these aspects.
