Systems and Services: Adding Value For Research


Published on

Research data infrastructure and services at universities and research institutions are constantly evolving to make better use of technology and to better meet the needs of researchers and other stakeholders. The first part of this Webinar will look at five strategies Australian research institutions have used to maximise the value of their research data assets:
1. Revise institutional data management strategic plan
2. Rethink data management plans and tools
3. Connect and integrate research systems
4. Track project activities, contributors and outputs
5. Leverage skills and knowledge gained through the ANDS 23 (research data) Things program
