Good data management has increasingly become an expected element of high quality research. The University is committed to managing research data to the highest standards throughout its lifecycle and embedding research data management (RDM) as an integral part of the research process. Funding body mandates are also now placing a greater emphasis on evidence of appropriate provision for data management in grant applications.
