Digital Research Infrastructure Retreat

N8 CIR is hosting a five-day retreat to support the development of soft skills amongst the research computing support community.

Overview

N8 CIR’s Digital Research Infrastructure Retreat will run from Monday 28 March to Friday 1 April 2022. Over the five days participants will learn, share and discuss the skills required to support computationally and data intensive research at their institution.

The week is being developed as a fully-hybrid event with online and in-person joining options available to participants. The in-person event will be taking place in Manchester.

The event is generously supported by EPSRC as part of their Digital Research Infrastructure (DRI) phase I activities, the goal of which is to help develop and embed soft skills within the DRI community across the UK.

Programme

The programme will take the form of a five-day retreat, similar to the virtual residencies that have been held at the University of Oklahoma since 2015. The goal is to develop the soft-skills specifically associated with operating at the interface between researchers and technology.

This is a pilot activity and will draw from the needs and experience within the community. If there are specific areas you would like to cover, or have a perspective you would be happy to share as part of this activity, please bring it to our attention by e-mailing: enquiries@n8cir.org

This pilot activity will draw from experience within the community to help address identified needs. If there are specific areas you would like to cover, or have a perspective you would be happy to share as part of this activity, please bring it to our attention by e-mailing: enquiries@n8cir.org
