Workshops Financial Databases

The Datateam facilitates workshops (except for the months July and August) on the use of our financial databases. In quiet month we will offer one workshop per database a month and in busy month more.

At this moment the EDSC offers workshops focused on databases. As of October 2017 this will change. We'll reorganize our workshops and focus on topics like stock prices, mergers and annual report data. By doing this we can compare ways to collect the same data from different databases in a single workshop. And if you know how to extract stockprices from Datastream you should be able to collect other data from Datatsream as well. There is one exception: Bloomberg. Collecting data from this system differs greatly depending on your topic. That's why we will still offer a workshop specifically aimed at this particular database.
