Following the successful pilot of the Cambridge Data School in 2019, CDH is pleased to announce that it is extending its training in Digital Methods in an effort to meet the growing demand across academia, civil society, the public sector and industry. During the current academic year, CDH will organise two Data Schools, a Cultural Heritage Data School scheduled for 16–20 March 2020, and a Social Data School, which will take place on 22–26 June 2020.
