RSP brings together repositories and research offices

21st July 2011, by

 

Representatives from repositories and research offices attended a Repositories Support Project event event in Nottingham on 19th July. As well as top class presentations, attendees had the opportunity to discuss issues in break out groups and talk to software providers at the Exhibition.

The keynote presentation was provided by Simon Kerridge from ARMA ( Association of Research Managers and Administrators). After the break, members of the RePOSIT Project presented on the findings and led small group discussions on the main issues. The European perspective, euroCRIS and CERIF, was presented by Mark Cox from Kings College and Valerie McCutcheon from the University of Glasgow provided an institutional view. EPrints users had the opportunity to see the latest plans from Dave Tarrant. A final Q & A panel raised interesting issues around the different models of integrating repository and research management functions.

The presentations are available here and you can also read a number of blog posts including our own:
