DARE UK (Data and Analytics Research Environments UK) – Workshops for researchers and research data infrastructure technologists
14/09/2021 - 15/09/2021
As part of the first phase the DARE UK (Data and Analytics Research Environments UK) programme, we are holding two separate workshops to explore the views of researchers and individuals working in research data infrastructure technology respectively.
Data has been fundamental to the UK’s response to the Covid-19 pandemic. As the UK moves out of the critical phase into recovery, there is an opportunity to re-evaluate the investments that have been made in data research infrastructures, and the research use cases across domains, to ensure that they are joined-up, impactful and support research at scale.
UK Research and Innovation has initiated the DARE UK programme to consult on the requirements for a UK-wide federated, digital infrastructure for sensitive data research that has the confidence, and meets the needs of researchers, data controllers, and the public. It will explore approaches for the next generation of trusted research environments that will enable fast and efficient sharing, linkage and advanced analysis of sensitive data in an ethical and secure manner.
As part of the first phase of this work we have been running a listening exercise to understand the needs of researchers and those involved in research data infrastructure. CF (Carnall Farrar), a management consultancy and data science company, has been conducting interviews to explore the views of individuals.
About the workshops
We are holding two separate workshops to further explore the views of researchers, and individuals working in research data infrastructure technology respectively. These workshops will be run by CF.
Both events will include a short presentation of findings from the discussions so far, and an open dialogue giving participants the opportunity to provide input. Members of the public are welcome at both events.
Researcher workshop: 14 September 2021, 10:30-12:00
Technologist workshop: 15 September 2021, 14:00-15:30
Where: Both workhops will be online
