This is a hands-on workshop which includes exercises in which partic-ipants analyze data in R on the computer.  It is most suitable for beginners in R and does not assume any previous knowledge in R but assumes at least a basic knowledge in statistics.

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.

Before you register, please confirm with your supervisor/employer that you are free to participate in the course on that date.
