As some of you know I have been in regular contact with MRC about the MRC e-VAL system. I am going to visit them in London on 21st July circa 1-3pm for a demo and discussion about the functionality of their new ‘federated’ system.
By then MRC will have completed some testing with some existing award holders from different institutions.
Of course I will want to discuss possible future world where MRC and other RC’s use a more standardised approach to collecting the data and I know there is very much a willingness to do this.
There is room for 2 or 3 others to join the discussion so if you are interested please let me know by 20th June firstname.lastname@example.org Tel: 0141-330-2674. Ideally you should already have used the existing MRC e-VAL system to participate in the discussion. If there is a higher demand than spaces I will put names in a hat or some other system to allocate spaces.
Will report back from the discussions via this blog.
