The next Data Dialogue event will take place on Thursday 29th of September at the University of Oxford and will focus on research data sharing in an international context. We are looking for UCL Early Career Researchers to give short presentations on their experience of using and sharing data across borders.

The event is aimed at researchers in Science and Engineering in particular but will also interest other researchers. See more information on the event and keynote speakers. The deadline to send us an abstract (max. 300 words) is the 17th of August.
