Next R Crash Course in September 2023

We are continuing with another installment of the R crash course.

Date and Location

September 4th - 8th, 2023, 10:00 – 15:00 (online)

Scope and Aim

The course will give you a practical introduction to using R. Focusing on real world problems and solutions rather than theory, it aims to give you a launch pad to start using R in your everyday work. The course is aimed to give you a solid basis for using R in your everyday scientific endeavors even if you have no previous knowledge of R or any other programming language. After completing the course, you will be able to:

  • exchange data between R and spreadsheet programs such as Excel
  • manipulate and display the data
  • generate various types of plots
  • run simple statistical analysis (t-test, non-parametric tests, basic ANOVA, basic linear regression) - create reports from your analysis in a number of formats

Most importantly, you will learn from day 1 what the advantages of using a programming language for your data analysis are as well as where the pitfalls and potential problems lie.


To accommodate our colleagues with caretaking responsibilities, this time we are offering the course during core working hours. Please reserve your place by sending an e-mail to by July 28th, 2023. Feel free to tell us if you have any care obligations and need to take this course instead of any other. We will take your information into consideration in case we have to select participants.
