University of Glasgow Update

January 14, 2013

It’s been a while since I’ve blogged here but now that the IRIOS2 project https://irios2.wordpress.com/is complete I intend to blog here more regularly.

I am sure many organisations are way ahead of us in certain areas but here is what we doing re research outcomes.

Publications and key findings – we have a process to bulk upload these to the RCUK Reserch Outcomes

Datasets – We are moving to a live metadata registry soon and working with other institutions and EuroCRIS on a standard metadata specification for datasets http://cerif4datasets.wordpress.com/.  Our local policy and guidelines are being updated  http://www.gla.ac.uk/services/datamanagement/rdm-at-gu/

Further Funding and Collaboration – We are testing extracts of this data from the Research Support System.  We hope that any awards for the same or linked projects can be supplied to RCUK where the publicity flag on the award is ‘YES’

Staff Development – The storage and provision of appropriate information is being explored with our HR Operations Manager.

Intellectual Property, Exploitation Mechanism – We expect to extract data from the Research Support System.  Any awards for the same or linked projects may be supplied where the publicity flag on the award is ‘YES’.  The IP Team (Research Strategy and Innovation) are being consulted.

Communications Activity, Other Research Outputs – We are awaiting a bulk upload mechanism from RCUK. We expect that many of these outputs can be included on Enlighten.

Impact, Policy Influence – We are testing screens to enter these details into Enlighten and hope to make these live early 2013.
