As part of the ESRC Festival of Social Sciences 2015 we demonstrateD the new version of the WISERD Data Portal (WDP) with the participation of an exemplar Civil Society organisation, focussing on how the Portal can be used by third sector organisations for Civil Society research.
The WDP is an online data search, discovery and mapping application designed to facilitate third sector users to see the capabilities of re-using and re-purposing existing data (their own and others) to undertake research and analysis.
The demonstration was followed by a question and answer session where attendees provided feedback on the WDP and what further features/ data they would like to see included in the development of the Portal to better meet their needs. The demonstration was also available as a live webcast for those Civil Society members who could not make the meeting and they were able to join in the Q&A session via twitter (tweet to @WISERDNews).
