24 October, 2018 - Writing Effective Data Management Plans

Time: 14:00:00 - 15:30:00

This 1½ hour workshop is particularly relevant for researchers who will have to produce a Data Management Plan as part of a funding application. Overview: Research Data Management (RDM) is an increasingly important skill for researchers across all disciplines and career stages. Research funders are increasingly introducing new requirements around Data Management as part of the application process. Often researchers will be asked to produce a Data Management Plan as part of a funding application or be required to share data at the end of a project. This workshop will provide a practical overview of the major issues in RDM including how to meet funder requirements, how to effectively store data during your project, and making decisions about whether to share research data. As part of the workshop participants will begin to develop a data management plan.

25 October, 2018 - FAIR Data Sharing

Time: 13:00:00 - 14:00:00

As part of Open Access week, UCL's Research Data Support team will be running a lunchtime session on the most effective ways to share your research data. The first half of the session will give researchers an introduction to the principles and practicalities involved in data sharing. It will also seek to outline the principles of FAIR data and how this relates to the production and use of data over the research lifecycle. During the second half of the session UCL's Research Data Management team and Open Access team will host a drop-in to help answer any questions about sharing research data, Open Access Publishing, RPS or Open Science.

1 November, 2018 - Launch of the UCL IRDR Centre for Digital Public Health in Emergencies

Time: 18:00:00 - 19:30:00

Recent health emergencies - including the SARS, Zika, Ebola outbreaks, and the Haiti and Nepal earthquakes - have unnecessarily taken thousands lives and cost the global economy billions. These events have shown the limits of current health systems' capacity and communities resilience to respond to emergencies at local, national and international levels. Bringing together experts from UCL and external stakeholders, the new Centre will lead on interdisciplinary research, training and policy advice to improve global health through community engagement using mobile technology, and strengthen emergency preparedness and rapid response by real-time data modelling, analytics and early warning systems. Join us to learn more and hear from a panel of high profile international speakers from global health, digital health, environmental risk and reduction, emergencies and disaster surveillance and planning. and to celebrate the launch of the new Centre. Networking drinks reception will follow.

5 November, 2018 - Advanced Stata: Programming and other techniques to make your life easier

Time: -

A five day course from the Population Studies Group, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. The course is aimed at researchers and other professionals, from any discipline, who regularly use Stata for analysis but want to learn how to work more efficiently. It would be particularly suited to those who are about to embark on large analyses. We will cover a range of topics including: • efficient ways of working using do files commands that allow you to manipulate data and to easily create new summary variables and datasets. • Stata's commands for accessing and outputting results including put excel to send results to Excel, a similar command to send output to Word documents and two simple commands to write text files and Stata datasets containing results. • creating new commands (programs) for Stata. Cost: £1385

27 November, 2018 - Lunch Hour Lecture: What Can the ONS Longitudinal Study Tell Us about Time Travel and about the Force?

Time: 13:10:00 - 13:55:00

The ONS Longitudinal Study is a sample of around 1% of persons in England and Wales, drawn from the decennial census. The sample comprises all people born on four (undisclosed) days spread through the year. Sample members’ census records from 1971 through to 2011 are linked together. This lecture describes the study for those who have not used it before – and explains how to apply to use it – by drawing on two examples. Firstly, we consider the film Back To The Future, and ask ‘what can the census tell us about time-travel?’. Mirroring the plot structure as far as we can, we compare the outcomes of people who were teenagers in the mid-1950s and people who were teenagers in the mid-1980s. Secondly, we turn to the Star Wars films, and consider the extent of faith of people who indicated in the 2001 Census that they followed the Jedi religion. Does the option to self-identify as Jedi encourage people to complete a census return, when otherwise they might not have done so?

6 December, 2018 - CLOSER collaborative conference about the UK’s longitudinal studies: challenges and solutions

Time: 10:00:00 - 17:00:00

On 6 December 2018, CLOSER will host a one-day collaborative conference at the Wellcome Trust. Its focus will be on identifying the best ways to tackle the key challenges facing longitudinal population studies. Two plenary sessions in the morning will focus on: Improving access to administrative/ linkage data; and Improving engagement with policy makers Two parallel sessions in the afternoon will focus on: Integrating new forms of data collection/ Future directions in cross-study harmonisation; and Demonstrating the impact of longitudinal studies/ Developing an overarching longitudinal biosample strategy After the meeting, CLOSER will circulate a report summarising the outcomes from the discussions; in addition, we will identify a number of small working groups to investigate certain areas covered in the meeting and identify key recommendations. If you would like to be notified when further details about this event are available, please email Jennie Blows (details below).
