As a research-led institution, Newcastle University is committed to the full lifecycle of research management, investing over the last 4 years in the development of two major systems to support researchers: MyProjects and MyImpact. Leading on from this successful development, University Research Committee has identified the need for policies to govern the storage, management and curation of research data across the institution. Iridium, which is a significant intra-institutional collaboration, will produce those policies in consultation with researchers along with the infrastructure required to support their adoption and use.
