Evidence Gathering Session at the #jiscmrd Launch Workshop

In response to the Evidence Gathering Session at the JISC Managing Research Data Programme Launch Workshop, the large, 18-month ‘infrastructure’ projects were asked to produce blog posts identifying the key benefits which they felt the project would generate and indicating what evidence they felt they were likely to be able to produce, within and beyond the lifetime of the project. The posts are starting to appear and as they do, links will be provided below:
