We're now firmly in the New Year and and we've been busy again, particularly with joining the NWCAHSN team at the Connected Health Ecosystem event and presenting at Liverpool Health Partners' Health is Wealth Conference. Here's a quick update on what else we've been working on.
The Open Labs Team
Innovate UK is to invest £2m in feasibility studies to stimulate innovation across four enabling technology areas: advanced materials, biosciences, electronics, sensors and photonics, and information and communications technology - and they are holding a briefing tomorrow.
FutureEverything has announced a series of new programme additions, including new commissions, installations, conference speakers, film screenings and live events, as the pioneering digital culture festival celebrates its 20th anniversary and it looks uber cool.
It's not often that you get the opportunuity to bring together the creative and digital community in one place and on one day, but Jellignite does just that. It's a combination of Jelly Liverpool, the pop up office for digital and creative freelancers in Liverpool and Ignite Liverpool the awesomely enlightening event.
There is currently a live tender for Health and Social Care in Liverpool (for Community Support and Specialist Residential and Nursing Services), whic is being promoted to the eHealth cluster and potential providers.
Informatics Merseyside approached the eHealth Cluster to see if they could provide some freelance support to work within their team, based in Bootle, between now and the end of March 2015.
If you work in the digital or the creative sector then it can be a soul destroying business expecially for a freelancer, working on your own, away from the hubbub of a normal office environment. Long hours spent in the studio or at home staring at a screen trying to be innovative and creative. Er, that's impossible. Which is why Jelly Liverpool offers the perfect solution for you in its monthly Pop Up Office.
Jelly gives Homeworkers and freelancers the opportunity to get away from it all and mix with like minded people in the comfortable surronds of Leaf Cafe on Bold Street. It proivides coffee, tables and free wifi plus a great bunch of the people to work alongside.
Ignite Liverpool, returns in January for an evening of fast paced enlightening talks plus a series of one minute pitches from local business and events. The tickets are now available to book for this supreb event and as always the tickets are free but Ignite always welcomes donations for their "Super sponsor" tickets.
If you have never been before prespare yourelf for a range of talks on diverse subjects from a wide range of people, about 10-15 people give 5 minute talks to their specially prepared Powerpoint presentation. It sounds easier than it is!
So book yourself in for a fantastic evening on the 8th January from 6-9pm at Leaf Cafe on Bold Street.
It's been awhile since the last Open Labs newsletter but they have been busy with lots of Drone activity amongst much more. You can catch up here.
