This presentation introduces the 'MaDAM Pilot data management infrastructure for biomedical researchers at University of Manchester' project (funded under the Infrastructure strand of the JISC Managing Research Data Programme between October 2009 and June 2010) which aims at producing a technical & governance solution based on researchers’ requirements with flexibility to meet needs across multiple research groups/disciplines and taking into account the institutional landscape and its policies. This encompasses data capture, data storage and data curation, and is designed to add value both to the full lifecycle of research projects and also by making data readily available for reuse.
The pilot is focusing on a specific domain area (Life and Medical Sciences) as input to a wider strategic activity to address the needs of the whole of the University research community. User engagement in the MaDAM project focuses on an iterative user-driven/bottom-up development process together with collecting non-technical requirements.
