Humanities Researcher Needing a Research Boost?

Are you a Humanities researcher? Do you need to repeat a simple computing task multiple times but don’t want to use your own machine to do this? By using the UoM computational shared facilities (CSF) you can offload your jobs to the high performance computing (HPC) facility. This will allow you to save space and resources on your own machine to work on something else.  Come along to this free introductory course to the CSF that has been specifically designed for Humanities researchers.  The course will take place on the 3 May and deadline for registration is 5pm on the 1 May.

Develop a service to manage restricted data – Engagement Workshop

Are you conducting research on a sensitive topic? Do you require access to sensitive or restricted data from external organisations such as the NHS, schools, the police or other government agencies? Do you work with commercially sensitive information?

If so, the Research Lifecycle Programme (RLP) would like to invite you to their breakfast workshop to have a chat with them about your experience and future requirement of accessing and managing restricted data for your research. This will be your opportunity to shape how the University supports researchers who work with restricted data.

Design a research IT innovation community – Lunch Event

The Research Lifecycle Programme (RLP) has a number of places still available for their second RLP lunch event. This will take place on Thursday 9 May, this time focusing on the ‘Design and implement a Research IT Innovation Community’ project (Project Q). This event is open to anyone at the University with an interest in research.

The lead speaker will be Dr Emma Finch, who is the Innovation Lead of the Research IT Innovation Community. Her focus so far has been identifying networking and collaboration opportunities currently being overlooked. Eventually, she will be developing a framework through which more research partnerships can be formed and innovation opportunities are identified and addressed.

Emma will be followed by additional speakers, names are to be revealed nearer the time, which will then be followed by a Q&A. Food and refreshments will be provided.
