The STFC e-Science centre would like to partner an institution in a bid to the JISC Research Data Management Call.
The e-science centre at The Science and Technology Facilities Council (See http://www.e-science.stfc.ac.uk/) would like to hear from partners with experience in delivering data management solutions and operational services. STFC (previously CCLRC and PPARC) have significant expertise in this area. In particular the e-science centre at STFC:
- Manages the NGS (National Grid Service) for the UK, including the NGS-SRB service which delivers data management services to multiple disciplines across UK HEIs. (See http://www.grid-support.ac.uk/)
- Operates national scale data management services for UK Research councils, as well as for STFC’s own facilities, including the Diamond Light Source.
- Runs the UKs Tier1 centre to deliver grid based Peta-scale data and compute services to the international collaboration for the Large Hadron Collider as part of EGEE and LCG.
- Is actively developing, testing and evaluating next generation tools (including iRODS), to address curation, preservation, and data sharing issues.
