Be Inspired

Innovate 2017 is the UK’s leading innovation event. Over two days it brings the brightest and boldest of UK innovators together to share, excite, and inspire businesses, individuals and governments to tackle the challenges of tomorrow.

Be Innovative

Whether you’re a start-up or an established company, excited by what the future holds, or curious about new frontiers, INNOVATE 2017 is a must attend event. Network with pioneering thinkers, meet like-minded investors, grab opportunities and register today.

Innovate 2017 Themes

Over two thought-provoking days INNOVATE 2017 will explore the major themes brought about by the pace and complexity of our world and discuss what that means for the individual, business and governments. From Robotics to Urban Planning INNOVATE 2017 will deliver fresh perspectives on innovations such as artificial intelligence, smart cities, alternative food sources and space exploration.

Building the cities of a future world

By 2050, 70% of the world’s populations will be living in cities – creating a massive burden on the urban resources. Already many cities are beginning to connect with the Internet of Things to transform the urban environment. From traffic management to waste disposal we look at how in the future the smart money will be on smart cities.

Day 1, 13:30, Connected Transport, Human Behaviour and Customer Experience

Day 2, 15:00, Will the future see a 100% urban population?

Automating the world

Could 2017 be the year when science fiction becomes a reality, as AI programmes can mimic animal learning processes and solve complex problems? From beating the world Go champion, to driverless cars and AI doctors diagnosing our illnesses, the automated world throws up many fascinating scenarios and interesting questions for the future thinking business.

Day 1, 14:30, Is increased machine autonomy going to help or hinder us?

Day 1, 13:30, SMEs and the 4th Industrial Revolution

Creating new worlds

Space used to be the preserve of Superpowers trying to prove their technological dominance. Now a new generation of ‘astropreneurs’ are exploring the possibilities of space for leisure trips, satellite and global imaging and living beyond an oxygenated atmosphere. We will look at the implications and opportunities creating a new world in space has for business and humankind.

Day 1, 13:30, Do we need a new planet?

Day 1, 12:30, Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund. Satellites and Space Technology 

Securing the cyber world

The 2017 US election and the National Health Service cyber-attacks were just two very public incidents of how cyber security can affect everyone. Add to that the proliferation of interconnectivity to smart appliances and the massive growth in data and you have a situation that is almost impossible to police. From online payments and data privacy to industrial secrets and copyright, the modern business needs to be aware of how technology can help.

Day 2, 09:45, Are the hackers always one step ahead?

Feeding the world

We are witnessing exponential growth in our population and it’s estimated by 2050 there will be over nine billion human mouths to feed. The demand for meat will grow by 44% putting an unbearable strain on Earth’s eco system and atmosphere. So, how do we as a species move forward? What are the alternative protein sources and how do we harness technology to help the farmer plough more efficiently?

Day 2, 09:45, Leading a second agricultural revolution

Day 2, 13:30, Will we all have to eat insects in the future?

Creating an equal world

The democratisation of technology has given rise to unprecedented levels of innovation across nearly every field of human experience. Information previously locked in libraries can now be accessed by a huge and diverse population. Innovators from the UK can apply their thinking to problems to The Philippines and vice versa. We ask is innovation is creating a flatter playing field or is it simply widening the gap between rich and poor?

Day 2, 16:00 How do we stop technology widening the gap between rich and poor and   ensure innovation benefits everyone? 

Curing the world

From cancer-detecting blood tests and computer controlled pacemakers to a vaccine for Ebola, technological innovations are helping to solve some of the world’s most challenging health problems. We discuss how innovative new tools and methodologies for prevention, diagnosis and treatment are being developed to improve the world’s health and quality of life.

Day 1, 12:00, Is the first person to live to 1000 alive today?

Day 1, 14:30, Diet Related Diseases

Powering the world

The development of sustainable technologies that power our world are more important than ever before. Energy-efficient water purification, organic electronics and photovoltaics are all examples of human ingenuity that will make the creation of energy more sustainable. In Powering the world, we will explore how technology is contributing to solving one of the biggest problems of our time to ensure the planet can be enjoyed for generations to come.

Day 1, 11:00, We’ve exhausted fossil fuels.  Now what?

Day 1, 16:00, Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund – Batteries for Clean and Flexible Energy Storage

Digital Health 2017: Global Public Health, Personalised Medicine, and Emergency Medicine in the Age of Big Data

Everything is affected by the digital revolution. The opportunities for interdisciplinary digital health research bringing together computer science to dramatically improve public health, global health and wellbeing of individuals and populations globally are extraordinary.

Building on successful conference series Electronic healthcare (ehealth) held in London (2008), Istanbul (2009), Casablanca (2010) and Malaga (2011) and Public Health in Digital Age Workshop held with WWW conference in Rio de Janeiro (2013) and Seoul (2014), and then Digital Health 2015 held in Florence, and Digital Health 2016 in Montreal, the aim of this interdisciplinary conference is to bring together public health agencies (WHO, ECDC, CDC, PHE) and computer science and IT and MedTech industry to cross-fertilize ideas and drive this growing interdisciplinary discipline.

Recent technological advances enabled by creation of real-time big data streams, social media, participatory and context-aware systems and infectious disease modelling are the focus of public health informatics.

At Digital Health 2017, held for the first time as an independent event, a new strategic theme will be introduced: emergency and humanitarian medicine addressing acute needs of natural and manmade disasters will leverage opportunities created by geo-located big data, mobile technology and crowdsourcing for improving resilience, early warning and response to disasters and emergencies. DH 2017 will cover a wide spectrum of subjects including communities of practice and social networks, analytics and engagement with tracking and monitoring wearable devices, big data, public health surveillance, persuasive technologies, epidemic intelligence, participatory surveillance, disaster and emergency medicine, serious games for public health interventions and automated early identification of health threats and response.

Digital Healthcare 2017

Digital Healthcare‘s innovative conference programme will explore the latest digital technologies shaping healthcare transformation and interactive case studies to showcase their practical implementation. The conference platform enhances shared learning opportunities for the full healthcare decision making team – from CIOs and CCIOs to implementation teams and system users. Delegates can choose from a variety of speaker sessions relating to the key challenges, get insight into areas of change and development and discover how their peers both in the UK and abroad have tackled digital transformation across the sector.


Keith McNeil, CCIO and Will Smart, CIO from NHS England will open conference proceedings, sharing their views on the growing importance of the roles of the CIO and the CCIO, highlighting key initiatives in the NHS that are really making a difference, and delivering their perspective on the major challenges as we move towards Paperless 2020.

The speaker faculty are experts in their field, who come to the event to share their real life experiences and give practical examples of how they have approached and delivered transformation.

Speakers include:

  • Ian Trenholm CEO of the NHS Blood and Transfusion Service on how new technology has been enlisted to transform the service
  • Joanna Smith CIO from Royal Brompton and Harefield Foundation Trust about her role as an innovative disruptor

  • Understand how health and care services can be delivered with a patient centred focus and in a
    more streamlined way, and how interoperability is the key supporting this transformation of services.


  • See case studies and receive insight into how your peers in the healthcare and other sectors have transformed
    services through the adoption of digitisation. We will be holding Exemplar Panel discussions, where you can hear from
    experts who have planned and implemented new care models and structures.


  • Learn how the interpretation of data can assist in streamlining health and care services, highlighting those
    patients most at risk, reduce attendance levels at A&E, improve efficiencies and much more.


  • Rise to the challenge of building a robust and secure architecture through which to deliver a
    transformed service.


  • Hear about advances in remote healthcare – IoT, wearables, telecare and telehealth, artificial intelligence,

FT Digital Health Summit – Overview

The healthcare industry has traditionally been incredibly slow at adapting and keeping up with transformational trends. However, breakthroughs in affordable digital health technology – both wearable and industrial, implementation approval, regulatory acceptance and patient involvement, all have the power and potential to significantly change the healthcare sector and the experiences it can provide its patients and consumers.

For the majority of healthcare stakeholders though, an array of core barriers still pose a great threat to the completion of health’s digital transition. For all the great technological innovations born from this industry, relationships are still the key so will patients actually trust a system that moves from physician-driven care to digital-driven care that is accessible to all ages? Will a reimbursement system truly be attained? Will the industry ever be able to attract real long-term investment and will regulators ever get on top of cyber security threats?

For the third consecutive time in London, the FT Digital Health Summit brings a unique and diverse line-up of speakers together to cut deep into the heart of these challenges and map the route to a digitally-driven healthcare ecosystem.
