Shaping the future of data-intensive research
To celebrate our first year at MDAP: a showcase of some of our successful collaborations with researchers across the Faculties, and our ideas on the future of data-intensive research.
Meet Aleks, our resident archaeologist who brings a passion for uncovering history to help shape the future of research data stewardship at the University and beyond. Here we learn about Aleks' journey to, in, and around her new MDAP 'digs'.
Third Space: The Depth
Recently we co-organised a virtual event with Sydney Informatics Hub (SIH) titled Third Space: The Depth, the first of hopefully many to explore the data-intensive research support space in different institutions. Here we share presentations from this event and exciting next steps.
