Computer Assisted Qualitative Data Analysis (CAQDAS) networking project

The CAQDAS Networking Project was formally established in 1994 and provides information, advice, training and support for anyone undertaking qualitative or mixed methods analysis using dedicated Computer Assisted Qualitative Data Analysis (CAQDAS) packages.


We provide a range of open-registration events throughout the year focusing on the use of dedicated CAQDAS packages for qualitative and mixed-methods analysis, including awareness raising weminars, methodological weminars and software-specific training. We also provide tailored training and support for individuals and teams.
