Projects

As part of out efforts to continuously improve our services and develop new ways to support researchers we apply for funding for new projects on an annual basis. Not all of our proposals get funded, but in any one year each of our teams will be working on several of these projects. We could be expanding or refreshing hardware, developing new features or services, or carrying out a scoping exercise as a precursor to developing an entirely new service. See below for a summary of some of the projects we're working on at the moment.

Research Database Scoping Project

This project will scope requirements amongst researchers for a sustainable research database service and assess the suitability of available solutions to meet those requirements.

Electronic Lab Notebook Scoping Project

This project will scope requirements amongst researchers for a centrally-supported Electronic Lab Notebook (ELN) Service. It will look at the current state of the market and assess the likely costs and benefits of providing an ELN system for UCL as a whole.

Research Data Repository Enhancement Project

The Research Data Repository Enhancement Project is adding additional functionality to UCL’s existing institutional data repository including the ability to handle sensitive data, enable easier movement of data into the Repository, enable more customizable metadata fields, and make other enhancements requested by the user community.
