Research Lifecycle programme needs you!

The University’s ongoing Research Lifecycle programme is looking for researchers this January to support it’s ongoing work.

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

This month the programme is looking for your views on how computing supports and could better support your work. There is also an invitation to the launch of the new University of Manchester Digital Collections Viewer.

Survey: How computing supports your research

Calling all researchers and experimental officers!

Are you carrying out data-intensive research? Do you require local or non-standard IT infrastructure to collect, generate or process your data? Have you built your own IT solutions for your research?

The Research Lifecycle Programme (RLP) would like to hear from you to better understand and identify existing or potential technology barriers in your everyday research environment, and how the University can aim to better provide supported, compliant compute infrastructure (such as data servers).

By taking part, you can be entered into a draw to win one of three £50 Amazon vouchers available. This survey will close on Monday, 3 February.

Invite: Digital Collections Launch

Join us at Whitworth Hall at 5pm, Tuesday 28 January 2020 for the official launch and celebration of the new University of Manchester Digital Collections Viewer.

Built in collaboration with experts from Cambridge University Library’s Digital Library team, the image viewer partnership has been led by Dr Guyda Armstrong, Faculty Lead for Digital Humanities. This was implemented in close collaboration with colleagues from the Research Lifecycle Programme, The University of Manchester Library, the John Rylands Research Institute, IT Services, Creative Manchester and academics from the School of Arts, Languages and Cultures.

Canapes and drinks will be provided on arrival. There will be an opportunity to network, followed by short speeches and a chance to try out the digital platform and experience first-hand how the Digital Collections Viewer could transform your research.

This event is free, but booking is essential. Please register via Eventbrite.

We look forward to seeing you there.
