Event Details

 

This session will explore the nature of 'research data' in the creative arts, its importance, and the basic principles and reasons for data curation and preservation. It will also introduce participants to the creation of a research data management plan and the essential requirements of the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) Technical Summary and Plan.

The workshop is open to research students (PhD/MPhil), research staff, library and research support staff in Higher Education institutions across the UK.  (Please note that priority will be given to bookings from AHRC-funded research students and staff).

New Reid Building

The workshop will be held in the new Reid Building by Steven Holl Architects with its translucent glass facade, which is designed to be in 'complementary contrast' to the famous Charles Rennie Mackintosh building of 1909 for the Glasgow School of Art located opposite.  The Reid Building was officially opened in April 2014.

VADS4R Project

The VADS4R project will provide a research data management (RDM) training programme tailored to the needs of early careers researchers and PhD students in the visual arts.

 

The project is led by the Centre for Digital Scholarship (formerly known as VADS), a Research Centre of the Library at the University for the Creative Arts (UCA). This collaborative venture is working in partnership with Falmouth University and Glasgow School of Art to develop, deliver, and evaluate an RDM training programme across each of the three specialist arts institutions. VADS4R will run from February 2013 to July 2014 and is funded by an Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) Skills Development Award.

 

The VADS4R project builds on the work of the KAPTUR project (2011- 2013), which was funded through the JISC Managing Research Data programme.
