See the complete programme

We’ll be kicking off the day with a look at the future for Research Data Management from Chris Keene of Jisc. In his role as Head of Library and Scholarly Futures, and at the forefront of digital innovation in learning, teaching and research, Chris leads Jisc’s work on the future role and capabilities of digital scholarly communication, digital libraries, and digital scholarship for research and learning. He will identify and talk us through some of the emerging trends, challenges and innovations for the Research Data Management community.

Establishing how an organization should manage its preservation activities to meet current requirements, let alone future demands, is a difficult question. After all every organization is different.

We’ll be joined by representatives of three very different organizations and custodians of three very different datasets, to try and understand how they might manage the challenge now, in the medium term, and into the future. Our case studies will be presented by Mark Hibbett, Research Data Manager at University of the Arts London, Simon Parker, Senior Access and Support Officer at UK Data Service and Emma Hewett, Research & Knowledge Exchange Manager at Royal College of Music.

Following breakout sessions where attendees will challenge or endorse assumptions and values that underpin the research Data Shared Service (RDSS), a joint session with Paul Stokes and Dom Fripp of Jisc will continue a look to the future of the RDSS in a joint session and live demonstration of the product; aiming to identify whether future development plans meet future needs.

Attendance at this event is free and open to anyone but registration is essential.
