Loading Events

***This event is open to colleagues from RLUK’s DSN and invited guests only. Instructions for joining the meeting will be emailed directly to attendees the day before the event***

This will be the first virtual meeting of RLUK’s Digital Scholarship Network. This meeting will consider two strands of work which look to develop the UK’s digital research infrastructure and digital capability. It will include presentations from Tao Chang (Arts and Humanities Research Council) and Simon McKeon (The National Archives).

It will also provide an opportunity for the DSN working groups to feedback on their recent work and that emerging under the DSN action plan. The meeting will finish with an update from the RLUK Executive regarding ongoing and emerging work under Reshaping Scholarship.

This meeting will be the first of a series of virtual meetings convened by the DSN, each of which will focus on a different area of interest to the network.
