On the 13th of November hundreds of digital practitioners and schools across the UK will come together to tackle the skills gap in our industry by inspiring our future talent through BIMA Digital Day.
BIMA’s long running programme matches schools to digital practitioners (whether your background is agency, brand side or higher ed.) for a one-day programme to inform and inspire the students about a future in our industry.
BIMA provides all the assets, does the background work. The ask of you is to be at a school on 13th November.
Thanks to the amazing support from Education Scotland and the DYW’s, BIMA have seen a phenomenal take up from schools in Scotland this year which is a fantastic testimony to the interest in digital and creative futures.
This means more practitioners are needed to sign up and take part.
So clear the decks on 13th November and join many other organisations across the country, to do your bit to bring new and exciting talent into our companies.

Join Textiles Scotland for the Textiles Innovation Network 2018: a dynamic day full of speed pitching innovation opportunities and idea generation, sponsored by the Defence And Security Accelerator.
Following on from a sell out innovation event in 2015, we successfully supported 9 textile innovation projects. We aim to unlock further potential from within the industry by creating the 'Textile Innovation Network'.
The Scottish textile industry has an abundance of creators and innovators; and Textiles Scotland has the power to unite them with business support service providers and funders.
Are you interested in:
- process innovation

At this event you will have the opportunity to come along to pitch your idea, meet the funders, and to watch and engage in a dynamic day. You could be part of the next big thing.
This event is run by Textiles Scotland and kindly sponsored by the Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA). You will have the opportunity to meet DASA and hear about what they do, and how they might be able to fund your ideas.
Also on the day we will be supported by Innovate UK, Knowledge Transfer Network, Interface, and Scottish Enterprise. Strathyclyde University and Edinburgh University will provide the most up to date academic research in textiles, data, and digitalisation.
