HRDS Webinar

by | Jan 26, 2023 | Event | 0 comments

Join us on Thursday 9 March from 2pm for a webinar outlining the capabilities of The University of Manchester’s Highly Restricted Data Service, or HRDS.

This 50 minute webinar has been developed to explain the functionality and costs of using the platforms that are supported by the HRDS. The session will be led by Danielle Owen, HRDS lead with Research IT. There will also be contributions from Caroline Martin, HRDS Project Manager, Peter Crowther Infrastructure Analyst, and Niki Harratt Communications and Engagement Officer.

The HRDS support platforms that help researchers to collect, store and analyse data for their work. Using these platforms is the easiest and most cost-effective way to demonstrate compliance with the security requirements of funders and the University’s data management policies.

During the webinar Peter and Danielle will explore how researchers are currently benefitting from the different HRDS platforms. This will include information about how they can be configured, optimised or scaled for different research projects, explaining how they meet strict governance requirements and showing how this flexibility has already enabled researchers to focus on their work whilst the HRDS look after the infrastructure.
