All University researchers and interested staff are invited to join the Research Lifecycle Programme (RLP) team for lunch, where the team will elaborate on what the future of research data management might look like and how our researchers can get involved.

The RLP has a stream of work, focusing on how to better enable our researchers to share and manage research data, such as to provide researchers with access to a University data repository, and develop new ways to manage restricted data and digitise research data collections.

This event will take place on Thursday 19 March from 12:30 – 14:00. Places are limited and pre-registration is required.

Lunch and refreshments will be provided. If you have any dietary requirements, email
