  5. 5. What is RISE? Self-assessment model for institutional RDM capability Assess 21 capabilities across 10 service areas Three levels of maturity 1.Compliance 2.Locally tailored services 3.Sector leading n.b. ‘Right’ level is what makes sense in your institution. Higher is not necessarily better RISE workshop, Charles Sturt Uni, 26 Aug 2019 Rans, J and Whyte, A. (2017). ‘Using RISE, the Research Infrastructure Self-Evaluation Framework’ v.1.1 Edinburgh: Digital Curation Centre. Available online: www.dcc.ac.uk/resources/how-guides
  6. 6. What to cover in RDM services RISE workshop, Charles Sturt Uni, 26 Aug 2019
  7. 7. RISE components 1. RDM policy and strategy 2. Business plans and sustainability 3. Advisory services 4. Training 5. Data management planning 6. Active data management 7. Appraisal and risk assessment 8. Preservation 9. Access and publishing 10. Discovery RISE workshop, Charles Sturt Uni, 26 Aug 2019
  8. 8. Example of one service area Policy development Institutional policy articulates roles & responsibilities for researchers, other staff and students to comply with legal & regulatory obligations and external funders’ RDM policy expectations Institutional policy articulates the value of good RDM practice to the institution and its rationale for retaining data of long- term value. Policy is subject to a regular, scheduled review process. Institutional policies with a bearing on RDM (e.g. FOI, ethics, research conduct, etc.) are joined up and complementary. Policies are externally promoted, aiming to push the sector forward. RISE workshop, Charles Sturt Uni, 26 Aug 2019
  9. 9. Uptake of RISE DCC facilitated • Cranfield • Stirling • Singapore • Northumbria • Stockholm • Hong Kong UST Independently • Cambridge • Sussex • 4TU Centre • Melbourne • Potsdam • Leibniz Hannover And more we are not aware of…… RISE workshop, Charles Sturt Uni, 26 Aug 2019
  10. 10. SPARC online tool https://sparceurope.org/evaluate-your-rdm-offering RISE workshop, Charles Sturt Uni, 26 Aug 2019 Evaluate your RDM offering by completing RISE criteria online
  11. 11. Example RISE workshop • Convened a workshop with all the relevant stakeholders • In groups, performed a self- assessment using the SPARC online tool • Collectively analysed and discussed scores • Agreed priority areas • Fleshed out to develop roadmap 11
  12. 12. Future directions for RISE • Develop implementation guidance based on lessons from early adopters • Review results to abstract out data to create a knowledgebase • Compare yourself with peer organisations • Get tips / advice on how to improve or sustain level • Copy the models implemented by sector leading orgs in areas you are weak • Obtain an international picture of the state of the art to see global strengths • Would these be useful? • What else do you need? Hope to run workshop at IDCC in Dublin in February RISE workshop, Charles Sturt Uni, 26 Aug 2019
