On 19 May the Rural Economy and Land Use Programme (RELU) Data Support Service (DSS) and one of the RELU-funded projects, the 'Data Resources Scoping Study' jointly hosted a workshop on data integration at King’s Manor in York.

The workshop included presentations on projects involving integration of data from socio-economic and natural science disciplines which discussed the practical issues involved and approaches to resolving common difficulties. Participants heard from a number of RELU case studies together with papers highlighting work being undertaken within the government department, Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) and within the e-social science research arena.
