The ‘Branch out in STEM’ programme is fully funded, meaning there’s no cost to your organisation. This is possible thanks to funding from the European Social Fund and the delivery partners, which include the University of Derby, Nottingham Trent University, Derby College, Nottingham College, East Midlands Chamber of Commerce, Enable, Inspire and the Workers’ Educational Association.

What is this session about?

Whether you key data in by hand, gather data from business systems, use data sets available publicly, or use IoT sensor generated data — our data now comes from many different sources.

Each of these comes with challenges and many processes today rely on a mix of data sources. This workshop explores ways to generate data and looks at examples for integrating data from different sources. You will learn about topics such as volume, accuracy and velocity of data, providing you with an understanding of just how dynamic data is. You will also gain an insight into data storage and processing options.

Am I eligible to participate?

To participate in the programme you must meet the funding criteria requirements. This means you must work for a small to medium sized business within the Derbyshire or Nottinghamshire (D2N2) region. Alternatively, you could be self-employed and registered as a sole trader within the D2N2 region.

How much does it cost to attend?

This workshop is fully funded for eligible businesses, meaning there is no cost to your organisation. The Branch out in STEM programme is part-funded by the European Social Fund (ESF).
