About the conference

The purpose of the conference is to nurture relationships between studies, share knowledge and learning in key areas of study management, and develop shared solutions to challenges we all face.

This conference builds on discussions at the first collaborative conference in December 2018, where representatives from UK longitudinal population studies debated critical issues in new forms of data collection, data linkage, harmonisation and policy engagement. The discussions were documented in our report, Preparing for the future: Tackling the key challenges facing the UK’s longitudinal population studies. This year, we are pleased to be able to invite international studies to join these important discussions.
