October 13th 2020 - October 14th 2020 | Virtual Conference

2020 Connect Awards

Due to COVID-19, we have made the tough decision to cancel the in-person awards ceremony that is usually a key part of the Connect conference.  This decision has been taken with the safety of attendees in mind and is in line with current Scottish Government guidance and public health advice for large indoor events.

But, we will still recognise the fantastic projects and outstanding individuals that were nominated this year.  Winners will be announced during our virtual Connect and they will receive their trophy and certificate in the post!

The judging panel for this year's awards were:

Jane Morrison-Ross, Chief Executive, ScotlandIS

Jarmo Eskelinen, Executive Director – DDI Programme, University of Edinburgh

Nicola Graham, Director of Infrastructure & Support Services, NHS Ayrshire & Arran

Heather Robb, Chief Digital Officer, City of Edinburgh Council

Anne Moises, former CIO, Scottish Government
