Call for applications open: Data Study Group - Bristol Event

Data Study Group
5 - 9 August 2019
University of Bristol

Event details

Building on the popular Turing Data Study Groups held three times a year at The Alan Turing Institute, the Network Data Study Group in Bristol will offer the opportunity for collaborative working and networking on a local level with the Turing’s partner universities.

What are Data Study Groups?

  • Intensive five day 'collaborative hackathons', which bring together organisations from industry, government, and the third sector, with talented multi-disciplinary researchers from academia;
  • Organisations act as Data Study Group 'Challenge Owners', providing real-world problems and data sets to be tackled by small groups of highly talented, carefully selected researchers;
  • Researchers brainstorm and engineer data science solutions, presenting their work at the end of the week.

Why apply?

Researchers get an opportunity to put knowledge into practice and go beyond individual fields of research to solve real world problems. The event also offers participants the chance to forge new networks for future research projects, and build links with The Alan Turing Institute – the UK’s national institute for data science and artificial intelligence.

Reports from previous Data Study Groups are available on the Outcomes section of the April 2018 Data Study Group pages.

Deadline to apply: Monday 8 July 12:00 noon GMT.
