How does the ISC relate to other groupings within UKOLN?

The ISC is a part of UKOLN. The recent restructuring of UKOLN also led to the establishment of the IRG (Informatics Research Group).  Staff who are members of the IRG will typically be involved in project-funded activities and will have a research focus to their work. In addition to these two units, UKOLN is also a partner in the DCC (Digital Curation Centre).
