Vote for ideas on Research Data Spring

It’s great to see how many ideas have been submitted to the Research Data Spring already. There are already over 40 proposals that cover a wide range of research data challenges. There are only a few days left to submit your ideas – it closes on Monday 12th January - so if you think there are gaps, submit an idea now!
 
Perhaps more importantly, you should register and vote. Jisc needs your input to determine which ideas are of most value to the community so please take some time to read through the proposals, comment and vote. Kevin outlined the process in a blog post last month  After this intial round of voting, a selection of ideas will be pitched to judges at a workshop in February.
