Challenges for data linkage ShareThis

Knowledge exchange workshop

This Knowledge Exchange Workshop (KEW) was held on Tuesday 2nd July 2013 at the University of Essex. The workshop brought together researchers on the three CLOSER data linkage work packages (WPs), relevant cohort representatives and others involved in CLOSER with an interest in data linkage.

The aims of the event were to share ideas across the CLOSER data linkage teams and develop best practices, and to discuss delivery of teaching materials for training on data linkage.
