LEARN cordially invites you to its end-of-Project Conference entitled 'Managing the Data Deluge: roles and responsibilities for your institution ' which will be held on Friday 5th May 2017 at Senate House, London. The use and sharing of research data has the potential fundamentally to change the way research is undertaken and shared. Pervasive networks mean that researchers are able to collaborate and share not only their publications, but also the research data, which underpins them. The LEARN Conference is designed to encourage all stakeholders – researchers, research funders, publishers, research organisations and senior decision makers – to explore what…

#TheDataDialogue 2016 When Research Crosses Borders In an increasingly globalised world, research is reaching beyond geographical borders, raising questions on the methods, laws, and possibilities in moving or sharing data internationally. As the volume and type of data we create becomes more varied, sensitive, and complex, we need to ask: what are our own responsibilities as professional researchers collecting data overseas? Who is ultimately accountable for data produced with foreign partners? What happens when national laws and policy differ dramatically? May strategies be usefully shared within or across disciplines? We are pleased to invite Early Career Researchers, Academics, and Support…

wearable tech

More than a generation after the rise of the personal computer, it is undeniable that the miniaturization of devices, alongside an exponential rise in processing power means that wearable technology has made computing more personal than ever. Wearable tech is all about data. It is changing the way we consume and respond to information; we’re collect more information about ourselves and using that to make a difference to our lives. This panel, hosted by Reuters Editor-at-Large Axel Threlfall, brings together three aspects of wearable tech. The first wave of wearables was driven by health and fitness applications. Esther Rodriguez-Villas co-founder of Imperial…
