New technologies such as machine learning and artificial intelligence has increased the possibilities for data-driven research and its growing importance across disciplines is making data policy, infrastructure and management a key concern for universities.
Through its university partners, SES actively seeks to contribute to national and international forums and work with funders and interest groups, to develop an optimal policy and infrastructure framework for our research communities.
Data intensive institutions across the globe are developing ways to optimise the potential for data-driven research across distance, making connection between research facilities, storage services and high-speed data networks connecting the two attractive to both facility managers and to researchers.

Research Data Café
Staff from SES universities play a key role in helping to deliver better academic support in data management.
Through working groups that we coordinate, they are sharing knowledge about how to better support data-driven research at their institution. One of these groups is the Research Data Café which takes place every term.
