The Jisc Kit-Catalogue Pilot

6 Nov

The Centre for Engineering and Design Education, Loughborough University, is working with the Jisc to pilot the use of Kit-Catalogue in 10 other UK HEIs.

The pilot will take place over a two year period (Aug’14 – Jul’16) with ten institutions. We will explore if Kit-Catalogue can:

  • Make it easier for institutions to achieve efficiency savings through sharing facilities
  • Deliver demonstrable progress against the Research Council UK’s (RCUK) strategic goals in this area
  • Stimulate and facilitate new collaborations, both within HE and with industry.

We will also:

Together, these databases now include details of over 10,000 items of high value equipment being shared with research and industry.
