Contribution selected for final round of GISRUK data challenge

The results of an analysis of migration data and of the Brexit referendum votes are among only four selected finalists of this year’s data challenge associated with the GISRUK conference. The research was conducted by a team advised by Professor João Porto de Albququerque (University of Warwick) including our colleague René Westerholt. The idea of the data challenge is to identify novel ways of approaching the Brexit referendum results. This helps to understand better the dynamics of referenda and will enhance our preparedness with respect to future large-scale societal movements. All finalists are invited to present their work at the conference. The winner of the challenge will additionally receive a recognition worth £500.
