Digital Research Infrastructure Retreat

The N8 Centre of Excellence in Computationally Intensive Research (N8CIR) is hosting a digital infrastructure retreat.

This five-day event is being developed to help technology specialists, such as research software and research infrastructure engineers, to develop additional professional skills to support researchers and accelerate discovery.

Taking place online and in-person at the University of Manchester’s Barnes Wallis Building, the sessions will give participants the time and space to fully-engage with colleagues across a variety of research domains.

Generous funding from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council means this event is open to specialists from across the United Kingdom.
