CARMEN

Published: September 2008

A study was made of the CARMEN (Code, Analysis, Repository & Modelling for e-Neuroscience) project between October 2007 and August 2008, under the Digital Curation Centre’s e-Science Liaison programme.

CARMEN, a £4.5 million, four-year e-Science pilot project funded by the UK’s Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), commenced on 1 October 2006.  

Its driving aspiration has been to make possible an entirely new and more effective means of conducting neurophysiological research through the introduction of technology-enabled methods for sharing experimental data.

The DCC study of CARMEN aimed to provide an understanding the data curation requirements of this sector of the active e-Science community.  It carried a dual objective to identify good practice or proven solutions whilst also informing the DCC’s own tools and services around actual needs and requirements.
