The Open University launches Academic Partnership with Digital DNA

Digital DNA

The Open University is proud to announce that it will be an academic partner to Digital DNA for this year’s flagship event on 6th and 7th June at St. George’s Market, Belfast. Digital DNA is Ireland’s leading business and technology event. Launched on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange in 2013, it’s doubled year on year to become the go to event for businesses wanting to explore the challenges and opportunities digital technology presents.

Open University National Director, John D’Arcy commented, “As an early pioneer in digital innovation, formalising our partnership with Digital DNA has made perfect sense to The Open University. The Digital DNA flagship event has become unmissable for anyone involved within the digital technology sector within Northern Ireland. In fact, Digital DNA’s global outreach is playing a significant role in putting Northern Ireland on the map as a real leader in the knowledge economy.”

“We look forward to playing a prominent role in the event and trust that it will spark many collaboration and innovation opportunities that will make a real impact on the economy of Northern Ireland.”

With over 2,000 delegates from 25 countries descending on Digital DNA to catch over 125 speakers across the two day event, Digital DNA is a unique opportunity to do business differently in an environment created to share knowledge and build relationships.

Alan Fletcher from The Open University will be running a session within the Data Hub at 10.30am on Tuesday 6th June entitled “Innovation and The Open University: From Open Cities to Open Blockchain”.
