Past Projects

Community Capability Model for Data-Intensive Research

The CCMDIR (Community Capability Model for Data-Intensive Research) project was a collaboration with Microsoft Research. It developed a framework enabling researchers, institutions and funders to model a range of disciplinary and community behaviours with respect to the adoption, usage, development and exploitation of cyber-infrastructure for data-intensive research.

Funding

The CCMDIR project was funded from 1 June 2011 to 31 July 2014 by Microsoft Research.

immersiveInformatics

The immersiveInformatics Project built a distinctive training pilot programme that aimed to equip a broad range of academic staff roles with Research Data Management skills as a key element of capacity and capability building. The immersiveInformatics programme provides participants with the essential knowledge required to describe, manage, identify, access, preserve and re-use research data. An array of reporting and sharing tools was produced to help participants reflect upon and communicate their training experience and findings.

The project was a collaboration between the University of Melbourne, UKOLN, and the University of Bath.

Funding

ImmersiveInformatics was funded from 1 January 2013 to 31 December 2013.

Further back

Between 2011 and July 2013, our project work was conducted under the banner of the UKOLN Informatics Research Group (IRG). The UKOLN Innovation Support Centre (ISC) also conducted some projects.

Before the establishment of the IRG and ISC in 2011, our projects were conducted by the Research and Development, Policy and Advice, and Distributed Systems and Services teams at UKOLN.
