Uniquip Seminar – “Defining standards for the publication of research facilities and equipment data” – 18th & 19th September

Loughborough University is a partner in this national project and all interested colleagues are welcome to attend – please forward onto staff who may be interested.

You are invited to a national seminar on the subject of research equipment data sharing, supported by EPSRC and hosted by the University of Southampton, with key note speaker Professor Nigel Shadbolt.
The UNIQUIP Project (, launched in July this year, was established with the aim of driving developments in the sharing of research facilities and equipment datasets.  
This two day seminar will facilitate discussions and debate in some of the key areas of data sharing including:

  • Vocabulary development – creating data rich information
  • Technology developments – including interoperability
  • Sustainable practices – managing and integrating data
  • The future – creating national data sets

It is hoped that the outcome of the seminar, will be recommendations from the community, for the description, management and publication of data on UK research equipment and facilities.  The seminar promises to provide some fascinating insights, spaces are limited so register as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

Participation is invited from Research Managers and Co-ordinators, Data managers, Systems Developers, Laboratory and Facilities Managers, specialists from standards bodies, libraries and catalogues,  academics and researchers.

Keynote from Prof Nigel Shadbolt and presentations from CERIF, EPSRC, ESRC, Kit-Catalogue project and across the community.
