Event Details

The Open Knowledge Foundation's CKAN is an open source platform which is widely used internationally for governmental data portals.  A number of Jisc Managing Research Data projects have been examining how it may be used to support research data management in universities.

In conjunction with OKF/CKAN, the Orbital and data.bris projects, the Jisc Managing Research Data programme is facilitating a workshop which will provide an opportunity to learn more about CKAN and its potential for research data management in an academic setting (as a platform for managing active data, as a data portal or catalogue and in other ways).

The intention is also that the presentations and discussions should feed into a requirements gathering exercise that will help Joss Winn of the Orbital project conduct an evaluation of CKAN for academic use.  This evaluation may also influence the future development of CKAN which will benefit the higher education sector.
