Stakeholder Engagement

WP2 is lead by Barbara Montanari. This work package will carry out stakeholder engagement with the main objective of gathering requirements that will inform the plan for phase 2 that will be prepared under WP1. This activity will run the majority of the project communications including events, social media and community updates. We will also be undertaking a program of stakeholder engagement events to receive input from the wide range of stakeholders. This includes running workshops around different data themes and engaging with communities on a group and individual level  These engagement activities will allow us to elicit requirements from communities.

Nationally, the focus of this first engagement phase will be mainly in the PS research and computing/software infrastructure domains. Engagement with other data infrastructure initiatives in other domains and overseas will also be undertaken in order to learn from other experiences and to design the PSDI so that it can be linked with data infrastructures across UKRI in a future phase. In addition to the categories of stakeholders represented by the heading of the four pillars, we will engage also with further potential users of the PSDI not currently organised in established networks, the EPSRC compute and software infrastructure (including ARCHER2, SSI, RSEs, etc), relevant institutes such as the ATI, and industry (including data infrastructure vendors).


In this WP we will be running a variety of different activities to engage with the community in different ways. These include:

  • Workshop events
  • Presentations at community events
  • Focus Groups
  • Interviews
  • Surveys

We will update the website with details on how to engage with these different activities as they become available.


The intended outputs from WP2 are:

  • Reports from each community event
  • Landscape analysis
  • Synthesis of community requirements
