SPRITE+ Conference - Belfast, 28/29 June

As we reach the end of our first four years, and look forward to the next four, come and celebrate with us!

We are holding a two-day conference in Belfast on 28-29 June 2023 at the prestigious Titanic Centre. We’ll be showcasing some of our achievements and working together to shape the next four years of SPRITE+.

The programme will include a range of activities, including talks from expert fellows, lightening talks from community members, posters from early-career researchers, presentations from clusters of sandpit-funded projects, and thematic workshops. Our schedule allows plenty of time for networking and informal discussion.

The input from and discussions with our Members, Project Partners and Stakeholders will inform our decisions about how to allocate our budget from 2023-27.

We are delighted to announce our first keynote speaker will be Ciaran Martin, Professor of Practice in the Management of Public Organisations at the Blavatnik School of Government, University of Oxford and former Head of the UK National Cyber Security Centre.
