'RDM the movie' - University of Leicester

Dr Andrew Burham from the University of Leicester has just released 'RDM the Movie' a short 'Digital Story' regarding the RDM work and researcher issues they encountered during their research data management (RDM) project.

I really enjoyed this video, mainly because it was quick to view 3:55 minutes and it includes four real life data challenges encountered by researchers from different faculties.

Data challenges faced covered:

  1. Big data
  2. Data storage and retention
  3. Information Security
  4. Dealing with confidential and identifiable patient data
The solutions to all of these data challenges are provided.

Andrew is looking for feedback on this video as the plan is to use this sort of communications method for research projects generally. Further information can be found on the excellent University of Leicester Research Data Management Website
