UKOLN and JISC infoNet provide programme support for all of the JISC projects funded as part of the JISC’s Research Information Management activity. Projects have been funded in three phases, with a fourth currently getting underway (JISC Grant Funding 16/11). JISC infoNet primarily focuses on the business requirements for RIM, UKOLN on CERIF and data harmonisation needs. UKOLN produces briefing documents on CERIF, data harmonisation, RIM ‘state of the art’ and other matters of interest to the sector. It also helps foster collaboration through meetings and workshops. Other advice is also available to the sector, for example from UCISA, the Association of Research Managers and Administrators (ARMA) and from JISC services like the Repositories Support Project.
