Past Research Projects
Previous research projects from the consortium include:
- BlogMyData is a JISC Virtual Research Environment Rapid Innovation project that has created a pilot VRE that combines Reading’s “Godiva2” environmental data visualization system with Southampton’s “LabTrove” blogging environment.
- Flexible Services for the Support of Research is a JISC-funded project that is investigating the use of cloud technologies to provide computational and storage services to the UK academic research community.
- Infrastructure for Integration in Structural Sciences (I2S2)
- The’ Infrastructure for Integration in Structural Sciences’ (I2S2) will identify requirements for a data-driven research infrastructure in "Structural Science", focusing on the domain of Chemistry, but with a view towards inter-disciplinary application. I2S2 will develop use cases that explore perspectives of scale and complexity and research discipline throughout the data lifecycle.
- Institutional Data Management Blueprint
- Institutional Data Management Blueprint aims to create a practical and attainable institutional framework for managing research data that facilitates ambitious national and international e-research practice. The objective is to produce a framework for managing research data that encompasses a whole institution (exemplified by the University of Southampton) and based on an analysis of current data management requirements for a representative group of disciplines with a range of different data.
- MashMyData is a NERC Technology proof-of-concept project concerning the visualization and intercomparison of environmental data on the web. The project combines Reading’s expertise in GIS data visualization with STFC’s expertise on data serving and security, and involves a test-case user in Oxford’s Earth Science department
- Building on the relationship with Brunel we have successfully obtained funding through the EPSRC Cloud program for a short project investigating the utilisation of trusted computing with cloud in the energy sector.
- Water Resource Modelling on Grids
- We are helping the Walker Institute to run ensembles of hydrological models across a range of computational resources to map out future water resource availability across the UK and beyond.
- The Webtracks project is developing an approach and mechanism to address the construction and propagation of linked data in the context of research and academic endeavour...
