On March 6th, join us at The Turing Way Practitioners Hub event for a special showcase featuring case studies, expert panels, and attendee-led discussions on the co-adoption of open source and AI. This will be a great opportunity for organisations and Small-to-Medium Enterprises (SMEs) intending to engage with the Practitioners Hub and join the next cohort.

About the event

Join us at this event where Experts in Residence (EiRs) will discuss the first series of case studies, and expert panels will share invaluable insights, recommendations and real-world examples, with a special focus on how SMEs can benefit.

From June to December, the Practitioners Hub brought together its first cohort of EiRs from the government, health, climate research, energy, and transportation sectors, facilitating knowledge exchange. Our EiRs participated in expert-led training workshops, discussion sessions and coaching tailored to their specific work areas. They co-developed case studies reporting the current state of open source and best practices, highlighting data practitioners and projects from their respective organisations. We will share these case studies, and discuss plans for the next cohort.

At this event, we will open the call for inviting Expression of Interests for organisations and SMEs to join the second cohort of the Practitioners Hub starting in September 2024.

Secure your spot for a day of inspiration, networking, and practical takeaways.
