CLOSER collaborative conference about the UK’s longitudinal studies: challenges and solutions


Wellcome Trust
London | United Kingdom

Open to: Academic | Student

On 6 December 2018, CLOSER will host a one-day collaborative conference at the Wellcome Trust. Its focus will be on identifying the best ways to tackle the key challenges facing longitudinal population studies.

Two plenary sessions in the morning will focus on: Improving access to administrative/ linkage data; and Improving engagement with policy makers

Two parallel sessions in the afternoon will focus on: Integrating new forms of data collection/ Future directions in cross-study harmonisation; and Demonstrating the impact of longitudinal studies/ Developing an overarching longitudinal biosample strategy

After the meeting, CLOSER will circulate a report summarising the outcomes from the discussions; in addition, we will identify a number of small working groups to investigate certain areas covered in the meeting and identify key recommendations.
