Research Data Café
Staff from our member 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 meets every term.
The group is currently meeting virtually, but we hope to resume face to face meetings hosted by participating universities in the near future.
Topics discussed have included discussions on e-labnotebooks, the impact of the pandemic on research data management and the future of research. Participants are welcome to make suggestions of future topics that the group can cover.
If you are a researcher or university professional with an interest in the management of research data at a participating university, you would be welcome to join us at the next meeting. Please contact Rosie Niven for details.
For more information about our universities’ work in this area, please view our research data webpage.
