Apply for the training ‘Working with Data for Beginners’

In Warsaw on 9-10th October 2017. Deadline to apply: Friday, 22nd September.

If you work with quantitative data (but not only numbers!) about public officials, parliaments, local or national budgets, public procurement or anything that concerns making public sphere more open and hence less vulnerable to corruption, this training is for you! If you struggle with spreadsheets or big chunks of data for analysis, you will meet people who share the same troubles.

The training is open to participants active in civil society in the above topics and coming from Central and Eastern Europe, Russia, Western Balkans and Turkey, Baltic States, South Caucasus – as shown on the map. (the above are the eligibility criteria). Motivation to learn is more important than experience. Please, give detailed information in your application to increase your chances to be selected.

During the training, we will focus on helping you learn basic technical aspects of working with data for transparency. For example:

  • What are the kinds of data you may work with
  • What are the good and easy tools for practical solutions and how much they cost (time/money)
  • How to well aggregate data in order to be able to use them efficiently
  • How to plan the whole process.

We promise hands-on work not theory, a lot of advice and a very practical approach.

Date: 9-10th October 2017. The training lasts for 1,5 day. The arrival day is Sunday 8th October, the departure day is Tuesday 10th October in the afternoon.

Cost: the training is free of charge. We cover travel and accommodation costs. Tickets will be bought by TechSoup Europe’s travel agent after participant’s approval of the booking.

Deadline to apply: Friday, September 22nd.
