On Wednesday 17th June, the UK projects funded under round 3 of the Digging into Data challenge gathered together at Paddington for the mid-term progress meeting. This workshop provided projects with the opportunity to present, not just on progress, but on highlights, issues, challenges and share this information with the funders and other projects.
Rather than have a day of listening to presentations the workshop was split into two parts. First of all, after my introduction to the day, projects gave 10 minute presentations followed by 5 minutes of questions. The second part was more workshop focussed, discussing generic issues and challenges, and to hear about the projects’ future plans, both in the second half of the project and post-funding.
You can read my notes for each project’s presentation, followed by a summary of the later discussion, on the Progress Meeting page. As there are 9 project presentations there’s a fair amount to read through. The slides are available in the Jisc Repository under the event ‘Digging into Data 3 Progress Meeting’).
