A typical data meetup in Aberdeen

Data Meetups

We run monthly meet-ups for the local data community in our home at the ONE Tech Hub. These started in April 2018 and generally take place on the first Tuesday of each month. While they were paused for the pandemic, they returned in October 2022.

Currently we are running these as hybrid events.

The format of the sessions is:

  • 6.00pm Physical group get-together. Networking over some pizza and beers
  • 6.30pm One or two speakers on data-related topics.

Our speakers are a mixture of academics, industry practitioners, researchers and other specialists who cover a wide range of topics, in an accessible way. Our past events can be accessed here.

We are grateful to our sponsors: The Data Lab, and Scotland IS who cover our costs. We couldn’t do this without them. We are also grateful to Opportunity North East who allow us to use the ONE Tech Hub.

You can book a place each month on the Scotland Data Science and Technology Meet-ups Group,
