The Research Lifecycle Programme
The Research Lifecycle is a five-year programme of investments to support The University of Manchester in meeting its goal of being one of the top 25 research universities in the world, through a series of strategic investments in IT and associated change.
The programme will impact three areas:
- e-Research Infrastructure – which is a combination and interworking of digitally-based technology; hardware and software, resources (data, services, digital libraries) communications, and the people and organisational structures needed to support modern, internationally leading collaborative research.
- Research Data Lifecycle – covering the processes and technologies of data creation and deposit, management of active data; publication; data repositories and archives; data catalogues and registries.
- Processes and systems that support the administration of research.
