Institutional partnerships for managing research data and beyond at Lancaster University
Please note: this session is a PechaKucha and is booked with ‘Ethical review for research in developing countries’ as a block.
This presentation will explore the work carried out at Lancaster University by the Library Service, in close partnership with the Research Office, to develop a suite of services that deliver far greater resilience for the institution – and individual academic members of staff – in support of research data management.
It will examine how we have utilised our expertise and harnessed technology to underpin robust management of research data, promote impact from research data and ensure that we are as prepared as possible for future change.
Furthermore, the presentation will explore how the culture of innovation at Lancaster University has informed and driven many of our developments in this space. The university’s Digital Lancaster strategy places digital research at the heart of the institution and has driven our engagement with technology to better support researchers.
The presentation will consider future challenges and priorities, including the development of KPIs and the strategic impact of developments such as funder policies and advances in technology.
It will also consider broader themes of engagement and advocacy with the research community to develop greater resilience and preparedness for change, including exploring how we are working with academics to grow a supportive culture of open research.
