    19. 19. 5 Implementation - discussion• Who should be included in the working groups? (IT, Research Office, Researchers, Library) – CARDIO lite approach• How can we get a policy approved? (committees, dates, contacts)• Existing work at the institutions in this area we might not be aware of?• Technical infrastructure: could be a secure, UK-hosted (or locally hosted) cloud storage system – thoughts? issues?• KRDS: benefits – Sustainability of research data infrastructure. – Change to user practices. – Mitigating organisational risks.• KRDS: metrics – qualitative and quantitative - snapshot 6th February 2012 Steering Group Meeting 19
