Are you ready for EPSRC?

28 January, 2015

The DCC has been collaborating with Jisc to run a follow-up workshop to our event last May on EPSRC compliance and have been overwhelmed by the response. Registration opened shortly before Christmas and was full before the holidays. We've since increased the capacity to 90 and are full again. It seems institutional readiness for Research Data Management is a hot topic!

There will be around 65 different organisations represented at the event, mostly from UK HEIs. It's great to see that such a broad range of universities are engaging with research data management.

We asked delegates what they would most like to see at the event. Interestingly, preferences were for presentations and case studies over discussion groups. We've got a great range of speakers lined up to talk about what different services are available and specifically how they're being used by different universities. Check out the agenda.

Jisc has also been working with the DCC on a short guidance paper and series of case studies on compliance with the EPSRC policy framework. Verena will be giving an update on these at the event. Ben Ryan will also be giving a  reminder of what the EPSRC expects and an overview of how they will be checking compliance.

We'll be blogging about discussions from the day and will put all the slides online. Please refer back to the event page for further details.
