Stage set for inaugural National Data Analysts’ Conference

12.00 | 24 February 2016 |

With all 130 delegates places snapped up and the agenda confirmed, the stage is set for the inaugural National Data Analysts’ Conference.

Organised by Road Safety GB and Road Safety Analysis, ‘Joining the dots’ will bring collision and casualty data analysts together for the first time.

The conference, which has the support of the DfT, takes place next Tuesday (1 March) at the Royal College of Surgeons, London.

It is the result of a survey conducted earlier this year which captured the views, experiences and aspirations of more than 100 analysts from across the country.

The survey findings showed that while respondents are confident in their analytical skills, there is a clear desire among analysts for further training and for sharing best practice.

The conference will also mark the launch of the new national network for analysts. The network will provide a forum for professionals from across the nation to collaborate through facilitated regional groups and an online forum.

A late change to the agenda sees Alexandre Santacreu, principal research and data analyst at TfL, added to the ‘Big Data & Breaking Bad’ session.

The exhibition, which will run alongside the event, features five organisations – Romex, Vysionics, 3M, Buchanan Computing and Road Safety Analysis.

The organisers are encouraging delegates to get involved on Twitter, by using the hashtag #jtd2016.
