Connected Nation: Thriving In A Digital World - Live Twitter Chat

Advances in information and communications technologies are revolutionising business, society, and policy across the world. New advances from fundamental research in big data science, cyber security, and future capabilities through the internet of things have the potential to have a major impact on the world as we know it. In this context, how can we make the most of the technology available? How can we not only keep pace with these advances, but keep at the forefront of developments, and truly "thrive in a digital world"?

On 08 December 2015, EPSRC will be bringing together experts from business, policy and academia to debate just that. We invite you to join the conversation, and engage directly in live debate at #ConnectedNationUK:
