Digifest 2024

Imagining the future of education and research: 12-13 March 2024, Birmingham ICC or online

Imagine the future

Not the inevitable, but what you want it to be. Digifest creates a space where you can not only learn about how innovation can help you now, but what it will allow you to do in the future. Explore these possibilities with us and feel inspired to realise your ambitions for the sector.

This is your opportunity to leave your ‘here and now’ and unleash the power of your imagination. That’s the first step. What comes next – that’s the adventure.
