Calling all former digital health and care masters students: we want to learn about your research and your subsequent career!

Since 2015, the Digital Health & Care Innovation Centre (DHI) has awarded funding to 110 Master’s students in digital health and care. The disciplines we have supported students in range from computing and engineering to sports science, nursing, midwifery, sociology, design, Global e-health, health economics, health psychology, rural health and care, and more.

This year, the DHI wants to celebrate the network of digital health and care scholars in Scotland and bring the spotlight on their Master’s work or their subsequent research.

Hence, as part of this year’s DigiFest, we are hosting a full day event (14th December, between 0900-1500) at the University of Strathclyde’s Technology and Innovation Centre (TIC) to promote research in digital health and care, to inspire future research and provide networking opportunities to our alumni with peers, academics, policy-makers, health and care professionals, and industry representatives.

We are giving graduates the opportunity to attend and showcase their DHI-funded Master’s research and/or any subsequent academic research they may have performed in the field of digital health and care. The conference has two strands: one for posters and one for oral presentations.You can apply for both strands.

To apply for the poster presentation, please, submit a poster abstract (max 300 words); to apply to the oral presentation, please, submit a link to or a copy of a short 2 min audio/video presentation in the form found here:

The deadline for applications is: 14 November 2022.

Applications will be judged by the DHI’s Research and Knowledge Management team, and successful candidates will be contacted via email by 18 November.

All successful presentations will be judged as part of two competitions:

  • The poster competition will be run as an exhibition, where participants will present their posters in public to conference attendees and the competition judges. Successful applicants are asked to prepare a short 3-minute presentation explaining their research. Participants should expect to answer questions from judges and the general audience.
  • Oral presentations will be hosted in the TIC auditorium. The participants will have 10 minutes to present their research to a public audience and can use whatever visual aids they require to support their presentation (e.g. PowerPoint slides). This will be followed by 5-10 minutes Q&A with the Judging Panel.

During the day, a panel of DHI-selected judges will visit every poster and observe each oral presentation. This panel will judge the best poster and the best oral presentation before announcing the winners of each category at the end of the day and awarding each category winner with a prize!

For further information on the event please do not hesitate to contact Ciaran Morrison or Sanna Rimpiläinen.

We would also like to give the course organisers the opportunity to advertise their courses or study opportunities as part of the event. If you are interested, please get in touch with Ciaran.

The DHI looks forward to you and your students joining us at this fantastic event. This will also be an excellent opportunity for current students to hear about research in digital health and care (DHI-funded or not, the event will be free).
