Data Analysts User Group conference 2017 – videos now available

On 20th October 2017 the CDRC sponsored and supported the 14th annual Data Analysts User Group Conference (DUG), hosted at the Royal Society.
The conference focussed upon Data Sharing: New Challenges, Opportunities and Examples…

There were some great presentations and stimulating audience discussion over the course of the day around the conference’s key questions:
1. What important questions am I currently unable to answer satisfactorily?
2. Where might data reside, that could help address these challenges and what should I put in place to make progress?


The presentations are now available to watch online:
