Res.Search is a month-long event starting 19 June (one night per week for four weeks), where each week you will be introduced to a different aspect of data research: data cleaning, data processing, visualisation and research communication. During the event you will conduct research in a diverse team, working on openly available data sets. The event will culminate with a public presentation moderated by a panel of judges.
