Presenter 1

University of Essex

The Administrative Data Research Network (ADRN) is a major new investment in UK data access infrastructure. Comprising an Administrative Data Research Centre in each country of the UK and a coordinating body – the Administrative Data Service – the ADRN aims to provide a secure integrated environment to allow the analysis of linked administrative data for research. The ADRN was funded in October 2013 as part of a major new step change in data access and analysis in the UK which will also include infrastructure and research funding for data from commercial providers, social networks and the third sector. This presentation will describe the aims and structure of the new Network, outline some of the challenges to be faced and report on the first few months of progress.
