The Research Lifecycle Project (RLP) has been mentioned several times in our blog but now it has a home of its own. As well as launching a new dedicated RLP website there will also be a special introductory event to introduce researchers and research related staff to the RLP.
The Research Lifecycle is a five-year programme of investments to support the University in meeting its goal of being one of the top 25 research universities in the world, through a series of strategic investments in IT and associated change. It is a University level project, which Angus Hearmon, our Head of Research IT, is leading on behalf of Research and IT.
PA Consulting has been appointed as consultants to help us with the scoping work of the programme, and they are conducting workshops to gather information and views.
Anyone with a research related role at the University is invited to attend a special introductory event. There will be a 30-40 minute presentation and Q&A session on Wednesday 28 February, from 12.30pm to 1.30pm, in room A101 of Samuel Alexander Building. If you’d like to attend please book your place via the Training Catalogue. For a link to this, as well as to sign up for RLP news and announcements, please visit the new RLP website.
