In our first webinar – An Introduction to the Data Portal, researchers learn about the functionality in the Data Portal: how to identify the data most relevant to particular research interests; what is required for the single-stage application form; and how to work with data in the virtual desktop. This webinar was recorded in early 2018.

We welcome feedback on any aspect of our online training for researchers. Please get in touch via our contact page.
