The UK can only maintain its worldwide reputation for quality research, if researchers take advantage of the digital revolution, says JISC. JISC is launching a year long campaign called ‘Research 3.0 – driving the knowledge economy’, to debate how digital technologies are changing not only what research we do, but how it can be carried out.
Professor David Baker, deputy Chair at JISC, says, “The way we research is changing, not slowly, not even overnight, but by the second. The UK knowledge economy is under threat; unless we continue to invest in research based upon digital technologies the UK will quickly fall behind.”
A new video, ‘How digital technologies are creating a new paradigm in research’, sets the agenda for the coming year and introduces the key issues such as how to share data, why collaborate and how to publish research work online.
