Event Information

Open to







Jennie Blows

In 2022, the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and the Medical Research Council (MRC) commissioned CLOSER to assess the state of data across UK longitudinal population studies (LPS) and provide insights into what is required to ensure the data is in an appropriate state to support broad data sharing.

The webinar will talk more about the data audit and how it informs funders of the current state of the activities, where improvements may be possible to help plan for future data collection, and the support required for the studies to achieve the funders’ ambitions.

This online event will be particularly useful for data managers and longitudinal population study staff.
