Sharing our Work

Communicating the work of N8 CIR, our researchers and colleagues is a vital part of this project.

Since our first events in 2019 we have tried to ensure that as many of the resources from those events have been made available. This means that if you want to revisit something you saw on the day you can do so. Similarly, if you weren’t able to attend, you can still find out about exciting developments within the project.

Making our work as open and accessible as possible means that anyone can benefit from the project.

Case Studies

Our quick read case studies offer an overview of the work being undertaken by researchers, research software engineers and research infrastructure engineers across the N8 Research Partnership.

They highlight the benefits of working with research software engineers who have a unique understanding of both software and the rigours of academic research. This collaboration may help to facilitate a research breakthrough or simply enable a researcher to work with more data, or higher quality data, than was previously possible.

The page also includes our Bede case studies. These have been prepared with the help of researchers who are using, or plan to use, Bede’s GPU-accelerated architecture to further their work.

Research infrastructure engineers work to ensure that the platforms, networks and hardware that facilitate and accelerate research are robust and dependable. They find innovative solutions to the everyday challenges posed by ever growing volumes of data, the potential of cloud computing and of course, remote working during a pandemic.

Event Resources

The resources that we make available vary depending on the type of event that was taking place. We try and ensure that at least the slideshows are available to view. Often, we have videos of the speaker presentations or at least audio over their slides. The linked page, below, also includes materials from some of our training workshops such as Reproducible Analyses in R and Python for Web Scraping.

Our Event Resources can be found at:

Online Training Materials

This list of online training materials includes courses and materials that have been shared with us by academics and researchers across the partnership. It is not exhaustive, if you offer a course or resources that you think our researchers find useful and would like to see it included in tis list, please let us know by e-mailing:
