Hosted by Leeds University Business School, the conference is aimed at engaging with the regional corporate and public sectors as part of our Ideas in Practice series of events. Big data is an area where Leeds as a city and region has a lot of expertise. The collaboration between different sectors gives the region a particular competitive advantage and strength.
