About the event

In June 2019, CLS hosted its first-ever showcase of new technology for data collection. The day comprised presentations and tech demonstrations, and facilitated collaboration between technologists and scientists, from both academic and commercial sectors. The aims of the event were to:

  1. Explore new technologies that could be used to collect data on individuals and their environments in future data collections of large-scale surveys. For commercial companies, this represents an opportunity to have their technology used at scale in future, in some of the most prestigious scientific studies run in the UK.
  2. Develop collaborative links between academics working on large-scale studies, academics developing innovative approaches to measurement, and those working in/with new technology, including commercial companies.
