Second international NEPS user training at the European University Institute in Florence

On May 23 and 24, 2013, Dr. Jan Skopek, Operational Manager of the NEPS Data Center, gave a user training course at the European University Institute in Florence.

Alongside a brief introduction to the project, Dr. Jan Skopek presented the data structure of the NEPS Scientific Use File and illustrated its analytic potential by way of exemplary evaluations. Furthermore, the participants gained a first insight into requirements concerning data protection laws in relation to data usage, the use of data access technology RemoteNEPS, and the metadatabase NEPSplorer. The 2-day, very productive workshop launched an intense discussion about research questions and methodological approaches adopted by participants using NEPS data in their current research projects.
