Workshop: PSDI community workshop – Edinburgh

Workshop: PSDI community workshop – Edinburgh

The Physical Sciences Data Infrastructure (PSDI) project is organising a series of workshops to hear your views on challenges to manage and share research data in the Physical Sciences and how those could be addressed by a new data infrastructure for the Physical Sciences. Data needs in research are growing at previously unimaginable rates, and the need for collaboration around data has never been clearer. However, in the Physical Sciences, many research bodies, from large facility to laboratory, have their own data infrastructure with limited ability to share, integrate and reuse data across systems. 

This is the first event in the series of workshops. These workshops are aimed at anyone working with research data in the Physical Sciences, including data stewards, researchers and research support staff. Further events are scheduled to be held in Southampton and Sheffield.
