The Consumer Data Research Centre (CDRC) hosted the annual Data Partner Forum on 8 June 2018, at the prestigious Saïd Business School, University of Oxford.
The aim of the 2018 forum was to bridge the gap between academia and business and focus on how the Industrial Strategy might impact upon the social science research agenda.
The event also provided an opportunity for us to showcase our user projects, highlighting the benefits that have arisen out of a collaborative effort between the CDRC, our users and data partners.
Additionally, our new book entitled ‘Consumer Data Research’ was exclusively launched by CDRC Director, Professor Paul Longley. A free, open access eBook is available at www.cdrc.ac.uk/book.
A list of presentations are available to browse below.
