Big dataEssex will on Wednesday host the first meeting of partners of the Administrative Data Research Network, which has a key role in the Economic and Social Research Council’s (ESRC) £64 million investment in Big Data.

The Network is a UK-wide partnership of universities, government departments and agencies, national statistics authorities, funders and the wider research community.

Coordinated by the University of Essex-based Administrative Data Service, the Network will enable accredited researchers to carry out research based on linked, de-identified data between government departments.

The meeting at Essex will allow many of the staff involved to work on preparations for the Network’s launch in the autumn, when it will accept its first research proposals.
