Applications to take part in The Alan Turing Institute’s next Data Study Group event are now open.
Turing Data Study Groups are intensive five-day collaborative hackathons in which researchers work on real-world challenges and data from industry, government and the third sector. The events offer is a fantastic opportunity for early career researchers, PhDs and postdocs to rapidly develop their data science skills using real-world data. The event also offers participants the chance to forge new networks for future research projects and build Turing and industry links. Challenges have been put forward by WWF, Dstl, The National Archives, SenSat and Agile Datum.
Deadline for applications: 5 November 2019. Find out more and apply

What is a Turing Data Study Group?
A Turing Data Study Group is a five-day collaborative hackathon held at The Alan Turing Institute in London. It provides a fantastic opportunity for early career researchers to tackle real-world data science problems, engage with the Turing community and with industry and experience working in teams in a fast-paced environment. The event also offers participants the chance to forge new networks for future research projects. Travel, accommodation (for those not based in London) and sustenance are all covered.
Who should apply?
Researchers are typically PhD students, postdocs and early career academics from statistics, computer science, engineering, mathematics, and computational social science, as well as wider disciplines where data science and AI skills are increasingly becoming relevant.
How should the opportunity be communicated?
We know communication channels vary from university to university but we suggest:
