We are pleased to announce the fourth part of our webinar series on March 19th.

This time, we will focus on global data, and the webinar will be presented by data expert Nicolas Kayser-Bril.
He is a data journalism expert (http://blog.nkb.fr/) and the co-founder of Journalism++ (http://www.jplusplus.org/).

The webinar will be presented on March 19th, 12 noon to 1 pm European time. We will start on time.


Working with data is no longer a niche skill, but rather one that is mandatory for all. The webinars are for journalists and researchers who want to learn more about using data with an interest in India, China, EU/Germany and/or global trends. All other alumni are warmly welcome to register, if the webinars suit your interests.

4 of the 5 webinars have a geographical focus: EU/Germany, India, China and global trends. These webinars will focus on the following topics: economy, development, labor, education, social affairs and health. The 5th webinar has a practical approach on how to analyze and present/visualize data.

Our fourth webinar is presented by data expert Nicolas Kayser-Bril. He will talk about global data:

  • Large data aggregators: World Bank, U.N. and some specific examples of what they have (e.g. the UN's Comtrade)
  • The inherent limitations on data quality
  • Alternatives to government data for worldwide datasets

Do you miss any issues?

Please send us your input and/or specific questions.


The webinar will take 1 hour. After the presentation by Nicolas (40 minutes), we will have a Q&A session (20 minutes). We will take questions during the presentation by Nicolas as well.

You will receive information in advance on how to participate in the webinar. It is really easy. No special software is needed, just an internet connection.

Our series will continue on April 16th with the last webinar of our series. We will then talk about tools for data management, analysis and visualization.
