Background to UK-CIM
This is the fourth meeting of a UK-wide collaborative effort across the methodology research community in the health, economic and social sciences. It aims to provide a forum for people interested in causal inference to meet informally, for early career researchers to highlight their work, and to offer opportunities for networking to foster future research opportunities and collaborations.
