Welcome to the web forum for this session within the JISC Innovation Forum’s ‘Data’ strand. The (invitation-only) face-to-face component of this forum will be on 16th July 1030-1200. For that to be a success, we need your comments and feedback.
This is the ‘technical’ session, whose objective is to identify the key infrastructure challenges, to share experiences of addressing them, and to prioritise future work in this area. We’ll split the face-to-face session into a brainstorm and then spend some time prioritising the challenges identified.
Before the face-to-face session, and to help it go ahead without long explanations of everyone’s current work in the area, please could you share a 100 word project summary outlining how your work or project contributes to an effective technical infrastructure for research data management.
We’ve also prepared some questions to help provoke the brainstorm session, and we’d welcome your reactions to these. They are:
– What are the main infrastructure challenges in your area?
– Who is addressing them? (subject-oriented bodies, research funders, universities, academic departments, JISC, etc?)
– Why are these bodies addressing the main challenges? Might others do better?
– What should be prioritised over the next five years?
Please use the comments facility below to add your information by Thursday 10th July.
Relevant background reports include:
– Developing the UK’s e-infrastructure for science and innovation
– Publication and Quality Assurance of Research Data Outputs
– Dealing with data
