Eduserv Symposium: Big Data

  • JISC and the Big (Research) Data Challenge

Simon HodsonJISC Programme Manager, Managing Research Data

why is managing research data important
Why is managing research data important?

JISC considers it a priority to support universities in improving the way research data is managed and, where appropriate, made available for reuse.

  • Research funder policies, legislative frameworks, good practice, open data agenda
    • The outputs of publicly funded research should be publicly available.
    • The evidence underpinning research findings should be available for validation
  • Good data management is good for research
    • More efficient research process, avoidance of data loss, benefits of data reuse
  • Alignment with university missions.
    • Universities want to provide excellent research infrastructure.
    • Universities want to have better oversight of research outputs.
