Workshop VI (Sussex 2015): Global Biomedical Informatics: Innovation, Governance and Societal Engagement.

This event was jointly organised by King’s College London and University of Sussex. 

The heralded revolutions in global medicine and healthcare fuelled by the life sciences and genomics require the harnessing of the ever-increasing waves of data that are being generated, through development and deployment of informatics tools, databases and data interpretation. There is a need to better understand the governance and steering of bioinformatics by national governments’ and other governance actors’ on the global stage. Social and scientific trends such as open access and consumerisation underpin developments in the field. This workshop addresses this challenge by bringing together a range of stakeholders from academia, government and commercial bodies. 

Participation in the event was by invitation only.
