HDR UK’s aim is provide a rich variety of opportunities for everyone who wants to advance their knowledge and skills in health data science – whether they are  new to the field or an expert professional.

One of our newest partnerships is with the Alan Turing Institute’s Data Skills Taskforce. The taskforce has been set up to aid collaboration and sharing of good practice for data science and AI education, in addition to raising awareness of the value of UK data and to identify training gaps in the workforce.
