Enquire Final Report Enquire_final report_Nov 10

It seems that Research Council’s are working together towards standardising systems for output reporting which is very encouraging.  I expect it will take a while but will remain optimistic that we might get closer to one standard system in the longer term.

We will continue to update this blog as we further develop our processes.

Coming soon:

Comments on the ePrints Baazar event:


Comments on our recently completed internal mini-REF exercise.

Demonstration of our new Impact and Output screens – will be advertised soon for early 2011.


Report from Discussion with Kerron Harvey, Liverpool University

November 30, 2010

Kerron visited us last week and we chatted about a number of points of mutual interest.

– Output reporting to Research Council’s.  Currently seems there will be based around 2 systems.   MRC system and then a consortium of ESRC/AHRC/BBSRC/EPSRC  working together.  I understand NERC are using a seperate system but may join the consortium in future.   The STFC system is based on MRC and we await confirmation of how this will work. We are liaising with RC’s for more information and will update the blog when we know more – if you know more and are willing to inform others please let us know via the comments button or email me at Valerie.McCutcheon@glasgow.ac.uk

– How consulting, CPD, Facilities and IP are recorded at HEI’s

– Publicising outputs and expertise

We plan to follow up early January with a wider discussion via a video conference link.

Working with JISC

November 16, 2010

One of the good things about JISC funding has been the value received from meeting people who have similar requirements and sharing information with them.  This has included staff who are running other JISC projects, attendees at our workshops, JISC staff, and contacts made through these people.

We have been busy with a number of bids for the latest round of calls including one investigating research clusters/themes/groups.  We have partnered with other organisations in bids for CRISPool 2 (looking at CERIF data exchange) and exchange of data with Research Council’s.  In addition our Alumni Development Office have submitted a bid for a CRM project.

I hope some of these come to fruition but if not I am still very interested in all of these topics.

Will update the blog when we hear.
