We are delighted to announce the dates for Health Data Research UK’s Summer School, supported by the University of Nottingham between Tuesday 1 and Friday 4 September 2020. This is the second annual summer school hosted by HDR UK for the community to come together to learn about new areas of research in health data science, gain practical health data science skills, or get involved in ‘birds of a feather’ discussion sessions led by participants.

Please note that due to the COVID-19 situation this event will now be held virtually.

The summer school is aimed at HDR UK UKRI and Rutherford and Fellows and NIHR/HDR UK Incubator in Health Data Science Fellows, as well other early-career researchers and technology specialists in health data science or PhD students with projects focused on health data science.

Due to the current coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, the Summer School will be held virtually. We are designing the programme to suit the virtual format.
