User stories feedback: Karoline Kuchenbaecker, Division of Psychiatry

User story feedback on Research Facilitation. "All requirements met."

Summary: Karoline contacted IT for SLMS in January 2018 regarding storage provision for 15TB of genetics data for several projects. I met with Karoline in April to discuss her requirements further and I suggested that use of Data Safe Haven was required for identifiable data, and that the (then) forthcoming GDPR would clarify how researchers should handle such data. I also gave her some details about use of Research Computing platforms, especially Legion, and Research Data Services (RDS). I gather that she has since made progress on using Legion and RDS for non-identifiable data..
