Research IT

Calling All PhD Students & Post Docs!

We need you to get involved with the Research Lifecycle Programme by contributing to a Focus Group to have your say on what matters to you in your research now, and in the future – computing platforms, research data management, software, collaboration tools, and managing your research.

What is the Research Lifecycle Programme?

The Research Lifecycle is a five-year programme of investments to support The University of Manchester in meeting its goal of being one of the top 25 research universities in the world, through a series of strategic investments in IT and associated change.

Three areas have been identified that the programme will impact:

  • e-Research Infrastructure – which is a combination and interworking of digitally-based technology; hardware and software, resources (data, services, digital libraries) communications, and the people and organisational structures needed to support modern, internationally leading collaborative research.
  • Research Data Lifecycle – covering the processes and technologies of data creation and deposit, management of active data; publication; data repositories and archives; data catalogues and registries.
  • Processes and systems that support the administration of research.

We want to understand what’s working well, where there are opportunities to enable world class research in your area. This Focus group will be held at University Place_3.213 on 7th March 1pm – 2pm. If you can make it, please confirm your interest back to Gustaf Olofsson or Nigel Huang.
