Loughborough University Research Data Management Project shortlisted in UK IT Industry Awards
Loughborough University’s Research Data Management (RDM) project has been shortlisted in the UK IT Industry Awards for the best use of Cloud Services.
The RDM project provides a cutting edge solution for managing and showcasing data produced by world-leading academic research.
The cloud based solution addresses key challenges including securely preserving data from publically funded research and raising the profile of the institution by making valuable data discoverable and reusable by other researchers and the general public.
The project has involved academics and researchers, as well as members of IT Services, the Research Office and the University Library. The solution has been developed in partnership with commercial suppliers Arkivum and Figshare.
Members of the project team will give a presentation to a panel of judges in late September. The winner of the award will be announced at an Awards Dinner on Wednesday 18 November.
