Did you know over 30% of Ukraine is contaminated with landmines and unexploded ordinance (UXO)? It's time to tackle this problem head-on. Join us for a conversation on innovation in humanitarian demining efforts. #landmines #demining #humanitarianaid
We need to transform the demining process to bring it into the 21st century. Join us for a discussion on leveraging AI and robotics to reduce costs, speed up mine clearing, and make the world a safer place. #AI #demining #21stcentury
Today's demining solutions are expensive, slow, inefficient, and dangerous. That's why we need to bring entrepreneurs, donors, AI and robotic experts, research scientists, and other key stakeholders together to focus on the mission. #entrepreneurs #donors #demining

Earlier today we got a bunch of detail out of @NHSDigital’s Board papers and services performance pack - what of that will continue post-#merger?

N.B. The chair of NHS Digital announced today’s meeting would be the last public meeting of the Board...
With the news that the Government is rushing through @NHSEngland’s takeover of the statutory safe haven (@NHSDigital) with about the level of planning that went into the 'fiscal event', where exactly *are* things as the former/new Sec State starts work?

Well that didn't take long. After #Armenia initiated an #ICJ case against #Azerbaijan last week re #CERD violations, Azerbaijan said it would respond in kind. Yesterday, Azerbaijan filed its own case against Armenia, also under the CERD and also seeking provisional measures. 1/35
