On 10th and 11th April ADVOCATE, in collaboration with Leeds Institute for Data Analytics (LIDA), held a data conference at the University of Leeds, in order to gain a better understanding of the some of the legal, practical and ethical issues surrounding the collection of data across Europe.
It was a perfect opportunity for WP2 and WP3 to come together and discuss the quantitative and qualitative aspects of data research.
30 participants involved in the project attended the conference and its workshops. Sessions included an introduction to PESTLE and the legal aspects of data use. Frank Fox of Bridges Data led a workshop on available data, barriers and facilitators to data access.
