Video and slides available: Metadata management in the real world: ESRC Future Data Services

This webinar in our "Metadata management in the real world" series focused on the ESRC Future Data Services programme. A video and presentation slides are available below.

About this webinar

The Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) is currently looking into how to fund data services beyond 2024, as part of its Future Data Services programme.  As such, the ESRC is looking for input from both its users, as well as from those who work with and contribute to its work in this area.

In this webinar, Richard Welpton, ESRC Head of Data Services Infrastructure introduced the Future Data Services programme before delegates were given the opportunity to ask questions and contribute ideas on potential priorities for the ESRC.

This webinar was aimed at those who work in ESRC or related infrastructures, as well as those who provide data to them as a researcher or research group.

We hope that following this event we can provide space for a continuing dialogue with ESRC.
