A basic how-to-get-started workflow for BoardEx was presented during the support sessions. Check the slides ('Board and CSR-ESG data - support session') here:

During this workshop you can work with the BoardEx files for your own topic. A data librarian from the NSM Library Team will be present to assist you.

The needs of the participants determine what is treated in the workshop, such as

- creating a sample in BoardEx or working with a sample created in another database (Orbis/Eikon/Compustat);

- working with identifiers like the ISIN-code, company ID and Board ID;

- combining data from different BoardEx datasets;

- creating your own variables from the BoardEx data in Excel;

- combining BoardEx data with data (e.g. financials, ratio's, stock returns) from other databases like Orbis, Compustat or Refinitiv Workspace/Datastream.
