Assessing institutional awareness & readiness for compliance with EPSRC Policy Framework
workshop, compliance, readiness
08 May 2014 |
The Digital Curation Centre (DCC) is delighted to announce we will host a one-day workshop on May 8th in Glasgow to help UK HEIs to assess their readiness to comply with EPSRC policy framework on research data.
The workshop will be split into two main sessions. The first session will provide a summary of recent surveys by EPSRC (Ben Ryan) and DCC (Angus Whyte). A a practical session will help participants benchmark their institutional progress towards EPSRC compliance, using an abridged version of the DCC's Collaborative Assessment of Research Data Infrastructure and Objectives (CARDIO) tool. The morning session will also provide brief case studies showcasing examples of activity currently underway. After lunch, the workshop will continue with discussion of ongoing challenges and how these may be addressed.
The workshop will provide participants with an opportunity to hear about current good practice from peer institutions, share experiences and lessons learned in developing, implementing and sustaining research data management and sharing infrastructure and support services and an opportunity to benchmark progress towards compliance with EPSRC's Policy Framework on Research Data.
Please complete our short questionnaire on the potential need for additional workshop and/or meetings regarding institutional readiness for EPSRC compliance.
