Data used to be the domain of experts. Experts were relied upon to turn raw data into information that was trusted by users because that information was being published by experts. Nowadays, it is much easier for users to obtain the information they depend on from a wide range of sources. These sources are often unauthoritative, free at the point of use or come with no indication of provenance. At the same time, users seem content to carry on using this information without considering the credentials – or indeed the motives – of the organisation providing this information. The theme of this workshop highlights this issue and asks whether this is a cause of concern and, if it is, explores what the user can do to restore trust in data and information and hence ensure that it is β€˜fit’ for its intended purpose.

  • Absorb the latest research around particulate matter from ships and dockside emissions and understand the effect it might have on health

The event also provides a great opportunity to network and share experiences with peers, academic experts, practitioners and management from within the industry and from other sectors.
