Exploring Data in Europe - with a Focus on European Attitudes and Values
This free of charge one-day workshop, organized by CESSDA ERIC, explores the potential of research data available in Europe. In the morning, a practical session on How to Find and Access data in Europe will introduce key data sources including CESSDA and European social science data archives and examine ways to identify and access good quality data for your research. The afternoon session will host expert talks on research, data, and methods. Experts on nationalism, political attitudes and migration will provide researcher perspectives on important data in their areas of interest. The presentations will concentrate on data for comparative research and challenges in secondary data analysis. The workshop is targeted towards students, early career, and PhD researchers but is open to anyone interested in the themes and/or how to access data for secondary data analysis.
The morning session includes practical exercises that require participants to use computers with internet access. Participants are encouraged to bring their own laptops but there will be some laptops available on the day.
