We are delighted to announce the third round of our ESRC funded Data Impact Fellows.
The UK Data Service is supporting the long range-use of its data and resources by new generations of researchers and analysts using Service data - from the earliest stages of, and throughout their career - with the third round of its prestigious Data Impact Fellows programme.
