Responding to the growing mandate for researchers to share their clinical data, WWARN is joining with partners to host a 3-day workshop in January sponsored by the British Council’s Newton Researcher Links Programme in order to develop the skills and network needed to produce high quality data capable of maximising the impact of initial findings.

The workshop, entitled ‘Improving research data to inform better treatment of poverty-related infectious diseases’, will take place in Nairobi, Kenya, from 23 to 26 January 2018, and provide opportunities for early career researchers to interact, learn from each other, share research expertise, network and explore opportunities for building long-lasting research collaborations for data sharing and pooled analyses based on best practise data management.
