Here we promote online data science events to facilitate learning and discussion
In each of these open events, we will bring together an expert panel of researchers from around the globe to share. Each event will close with an interactive 'Question and Answer' session to allow participants to put forward their own questions, identify relevant resources and gather consensus with the panel and other attendees.
Upcoming workshops and events, and details of how to register for them, are listed below. You can also find recordings from each of our previous events.
*This area is being continually updated so please check back here for new workshops and webinars. If you have any events you want us to promote here, please get in touch*
