The webinar series was the result of a collaboration between a number of ESRC-funded resource centres working together to promote the value and use of social science data. The collaboration is made up of several organisations including: CeLSIUS, NILS_RSU, SLS-DSU, CLOSER, Understanding Society, the Centre for Longitudinal Studies (CLS), the UK Data Service, the National Centre for Research Methods (NCRM), and the three ESRC funded big data centres; the Urban Big Data Centre (UBDC), the ESRC Business and Local Government Data Research Centre (BLG) and Consumer Data Research Centre (CDRC).
About the webinar series
In March 2019, the ESRC’s funded data resources ran a series of collaborative webinars highlighting the wide range of data sources ready and waiting to be explored and utilised by researchers and academics. Split into four separate sessions, each focusing on a different research topic, the series aimed to help novice as well as experienced data users discover new data sources that could aid their own investigations. The research topics featured were:
Each hour long webinar consisted of 2-3 presentations from expert researchers, examples of how different data sources have been used in real research case studies, as well as time set aside for participants to pose questions and ask our presenters for advice.
