Writing about web page

Invitation to a free half day workshop 10:00 June 13th

Institute of Digital Healthcare, University of Warwick

HANDI, the Healthcare App Network for Development and Innovation, is a group of clinicians, developers, informaticians and others who believe that agile healthcare apps for patients, carers and health and care professionals provide the key to enabling IT to transform of health and care.

It wants to encourage and support app innovators. HANDI knows from experience that creating an app and getting it widely used can be a painful experience and have established HANDI as a not-for-profit venture to provide mutual support and help create an environment in which apps can flourish and wants to invite you to join them.
HANDI is an open and inclusive organisation that supports all with an interest in health and care apps including patients, careers, health and care professionals, developers and those with tools and services to support the app community.

The workshop is the launch event around which we hope to build an active midlands local cluster. You will be able to learn about the opportunities for apps in health and care, hear about the challenges and some of the solutions and have the chance to network with emerging and established app innovators and others with resources and expertise to help make good ideas a reality.

To learn more about HANDI, see the detailed workshop programme and book your place through the web site at: or for more information email

HANDI has already run a successful workshop in Newcastle (see the web site for its outputs) and has another planned for London on 30th May.

Request: Internet Explorer users please upgrade to latest available version

Writing about web page

Just like to alert users of the web browser Internet Explorer (commonly abbreviated as IE) to the importance of upgrading to the latest available version.

Our user statistics suggest that a surprisingly large percentage of students are still using IE6 the sixth major revision of Internet Explorer, a web browser developed by Microsoft for Windows operating systems. IE6 was released on August 27, 2001, shortly after the completion of Windows XP. A proverbial dinosaur where the internet is concerned!

If you are using the long outdated Internet Explorer 6 browser this site may not display or work correctly and you are putting your data and privacy at risk. To get the most out of the web, upgrade to the latest version of Internet Explorer for free directly from Microsoft right now. If you are at work and you see this message, talk to your IT department and ask them to upgrade the browser to secure your company data.

Download the latest version of Internet Explorer for free directly from Microsoft now

Video: How digital technologies are creating a new paradigm in research

Writing about web page

Today, JISC is launching a year-long campaign called ‘Research 3.0 – driving the knowledge economy’, to debate how digital technologies are changing not only what research we do, but how it can be carried out.

Professor David Baker, deputy Chair at JISC, says,

The way we research is changing, not slowly, not even overnight, but by the second. The UK knowledge economy is under threat; unless we continue to invest in research based upon digital technologies the UK will quickly fall behind.

A new video , ‘How digital technologies are creating a new paradigm in research’, sets the agenda for the coming year and introduces the key issues such as how to share data, why collaborate and how to publish research work online?

Help to take the UK’s research base into the next decade by sharing your main concerns over the use of digital technologies within research and your views on the Open Science report at JISC Research 3.0 blog. You will be contributing to the debate, helping to shape JISC activities over the next year and exploring how digital technologies can support you and your research.
