The Overseas Pension Project Goes to IDCC!


The DCIC team for the Overseas Pension Project is excited to announce that we will be presenting a poster at the International Digital Curation Conference (IDCC) in Edinburgh, Scotland this month.  Our poster focuses on the reusability of data for four different areas of research: health informatics, genealogy, economics, and human migration.  We are looking forward to sharing the work we have done on this project so far and receiving feedback from conference attendees.  Take a look at our poster and what we have been working on for the last few months here.
