  • Principal component analysis
  • Linear regression and analysis of variance: Introduction to linear regression with R, ANOVA, MANOVA, post hoc test, generalised linear regression (logistic, probit)
  • Repeated Measurements (Longitudinal Studies) in order to ensure the smoothest possible introduction to R

*Creditability within the kick-off seminar

For reasons of respect and fairness towards all participants and the workshop leaders, participants who miss more than 10% of the workshop are considered not to be present. You will therefore not receive a certificate and you will not be able to use the workshop in question to unlock funds or acquire further qualifications.
