Support for you
Our support for researchers goes far beyond facilitating access to data. We offer a variety of technical training on how to use the Data Portal's virtual desktop and bespoke help with data applications.
A helping hand for your data application
Mark Newbury is part of DPUK's data administration team, based at the Data Science Unit in Swansea University. When you work on your data application for any of the DPUK cohorts, it's Mark who's first on hand to advise on datasets and variable choices for your project.
Peer support – join the Data Portal user group
The Data Portal user group will be an open group of scientists who are either conducting research in the Data Portal or who are exploring the idea. In an informal online space, researchers connect with others doing similar work, share scripts and gain useful tips for working in the Data Portal. DPUK's technical experts are also part of this group. No question or query is too small! Here we are learning from each other's experience.
