Marine Renewable Energy Policy Case Study Published

We are pleased to announce that we have published a case study on developing research data management policy at research group level. The report, which was co-written by the Open Exeter project and the Marine Renewable Energy Group, is available in ORE and looks at how RDM policy and procedures were developed and implemented by the Group.

Marine Renewable Energy research on the University of Exeter’s Penryn campus is led by Dr Lars Johanning and is part of the College of Engineering, Mathematics, and Physical Sciences (CEMPS). The group decided to develop a research data management policy to ensure that the data it uses are secure, will be reusable in the future and can be shared easily amongst collaborators. The policy work was accompanied by a review of the way in which the group store data. This work has been supported through the Bridging the Gaps initiative and led by Dr Ian Ashton in conjunction with others in the research group.

Open Exeter: Outstanding Project of the Year Finalist!

We are very pleased to announce that the Open Exeter Project (http://as.exeter.ac.uk/library/resources/openaccess/openexeter/) has been chosen as a finalist for a Professional Services Recognition Award in the Outstanding Project of the Year category at the University of Exeter.  You can see more about the awards here: http://www.exeter.ac.uk/staff/benefits/excellence/

We’d like to thank Senior Management for nominating us and for recognising the important work that the project has carried out in the areas of research data management, open access and research support.  The team has worked incredibly hard over the past eighteen months, achieving a huge amount in terms of outputs and kick-starting a slow but steady cultural change in the way research is shared, stored and managed around the University. It’s often been a struggle to get our messages across to the right people so the fact that we have received this nomination is fantastic.

The nomination includes members of the wider team from IT and RKT – a model for successful cross-departmental collaboration has been one of the strengths of the project and something we hope to build on in the future.

Keep your fingers crossed for us on 26th June – at least we get to attend a drinks reception, a three-course dinner and hob-nob with the high and mighty even if we don’t win!
