We are inviting individuals to submit expressions of interests (EoIs) to attend workshops for the NERC-led four-year £10·4 million Constructing a Digital Environment programme in either Cardiff (4 October), London (10 October) or Edinburgh (16 October).

The workshops aim to bring together the 'digital environment' community, including (but not limited to) environmental science, computer science, informatics, statistics, social science, data science, policymakers and members of industry, and follows on from the first workshop held in Manchester earlier in 2019.

The workshops will include presentations from the NERC Digital Environment Team and the Constructing a Digital Environment Champions Ron Corstanje and Steve Hallett and other project partners. The days will primarily focus on networking and discussions around specific digital environment themes ahead of a future funding opportunity.

The themes discussed will be suggested by participants via a well-sorted.org study for which participants will be sent a link within three days of expressing interest. Each participant will need to fill out a response to a key question which will feed in to the workshop content. The responses will be grouped together to establish our discussion sessions. Please note that within three days of your EoI you will receive an email from us containing a link to the relevant Well Sorted study. If you have not received it, please check your junk/spam folder.

Due to the limited space available, we are asking for EoIs, from which NERC Head Office will select attendees to ensure a balance of expertise and institutional representation. To submit an expression of interest in attending, please complete the online registration form.

The deadline for submitting EoIs and the accompanying Well Sorted response for this workshop is 16:00 on 6 September 2019. Individuals will be notified whether their application to attend has been successful by 20 September 2019.
