Making a Difference with Data

How to ensure that we get the most value out of the data we collect.

What if data was not only available, but readily accessible to a wide audience of people?

In this theme we:

  • consider how data might be used beneficially outside of academia; and
  • explore different ways to enable researchers to exploit, collect and share their data in useful and innovative ways.

Topics covered will include citizen science, visualisation, storage, REF impact and using social media to promote access.

The keynote speaker for this theme will be Dr Erinma Ochu from the University of Manchester.
