Friday Lunchtime Lectures are for everyone and free to attend. You bring your lunch, we provide tea & coffee, an interesting talk, and enough time to get back to your desk.
They run from 1pm-1.45pm, with informal networking until 2pm, weekly during UK school term times. The lecture is about 20 mins followed by time for questions and friendly discussion. The lectures do not require any specialist knowledge, and are about communicating the meaning and impact of open data for everyday life, to tell stories.
