The current priority with the project is working with the Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Research on agreeing a number of pretty urgent RDM deliverables needed by the University. At the top of the list is creating a definitive University RDM web presence in time for the opening of term – 1st October.
This will be a case of,
- Establishing the site to raise researcher awareness of RDM and the University’s developing approach to it,
- Pulling together/signposting current resources and support available in various parts of the Universtity,
- Referring (linking) to a host of existing good quality external resources.
The aim therefore is to have an initial early presence, and then to look at a good deal of refinement and development.
