The meeting which was held at the Digital Catapult Centre, London is an opportunity to discuss plans for DEN activities in the coming year and to network with key stakeholders, staff and students from other DEN Member CDTs.

Dr John Baird and Dr Jason Morgan from EPSRC provided updates about future research funding and the current round of CDT bidding.  Representatives from the DEN Diversity Network, including Web Science students Cat Morgan and Gefion Thuermer, reported on their two recent meetings in Newcastle and Southampton.  Professors Sarah Sharples and Les Carr led discussions about future DEN activities and the next DEN Summer School in July 2018.  At the evening networking reception, CDT students from the Media & Arts Technology CDT, the Intelligent Games & Game Intelligence CDT and the Digital Civics CDT gave talks about their collaboration with external partners.

A well-supported Postdoc Careers Symposium took place on 2 February.  A panel of CDT students and alumni talked about their career pathways in academia, commercial companies and start-up businesses.  Others showcased their experiences applying for research project funding and the benefits of internships.  Professor Nick Bryan-Kinns chaired a Q&A session for panellists to share advice and top tips with current students, followed by a networking lunch and discussion groups.
