SES Open

Harnessing FAIR Data

What is SES?

The Science and Engineering South Consortium brings together the universities of Oxford, Southampton, King’s College London, Queen Mary University of London, University College London and Imperial College London, creating the most powerful hub of research-intensive universities in the UK. Our members invest in high quality science, essential for the sustained development of world-leading research that makes a positive difference to the UK economy, our wellbeing and to the world around us.

Knowledge Sharing

Whether we’re supporting researchers to effectively manage their data, providing opportunity to network or creating transparency in equipment sharing, SES is improving standards for you through the spread of knowledge.

Compute

SES institutions have access to regional, national and international supercomputing systems. In addition to the SES Tier-2 HPC systems, HPC-UK provides information on national HPC facilities, access and training.

Research Data

We’re focussed on supporting and furthering all aspects of the research data cycle, from data curation and management to transfer and storage. To find out more, visit our training and Research Data Transfer Zone pages.

How efficient labs could progress sustainability and excellence in research An exciting new tool is currently being piloted across the UK in an endeavour to standardise best practice across research efficiency, sustainability and quality. The countless benefits and developments in scientific research are widely known and recognised by society, from better drugs to safer materials and faster technology. However, there’s a rarely reported on ‘dark side’ to science where the materials and energy cost to deliver excellent research, both financially and environmentally, are piling up.  With over 2/3 [1] of total university energy usage consumed by laboratory buildings, it’s no surprise that...

SES Open: Harnessing FAIR Data

| Events, Just Added, Recommended, The Data Revolution | No Comments
Open Science is a contemporary and relevant theme across the UK research landscape. This year we're hosting a series of exciting events that directly engage with the practice of opening up science. From opening up the discussion on  representation of women and people of diverse backgrounds in research, to providing a forum for debate on the opportunities and struggles in mining or storing data, we invite scientists, staff, students, policymakers, scholars and stakeholders in science and education to join us. Harnessing FAIR Data focused on researchers who employ or are seeking to use data in their work. FAIR is a set...
