Analysing your own data: a workshop on statistics and experimental design - implementation (IN-PERSON)

Thu 25 Apr 2024


This optional extra day builds on what we learned in the main event on 15-19 April.

During the day we will have additional trainers available to help you implementing the skills and concepts that you have learned during the previous week. We encourage participants to send a brief explanation of their research to us before the session, together with a snippet of their data. This way we can prepare additional resources, where applicable.

To ensure sufficient support on the day, we encourage participants to register for this additional session before the start of the main event. However, if you are unsure at the moment and decide you would like to join during the week itself then this is of course possible too!

If you do not have a University of Cambridge Raven account please book or register your interest here.
