Our aim is to support individuals and organisations, including Higher Education Institutions (HEI), Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums (GLAMs) and the creative industries, to improve their current and future digital skills, in particular those needed to support their medium and long term vision.

We are working towards establishing a community of practice to support researchers and practitioners, as well as their organisations, to develop their skills in creating, managing, using and sharing data. We know that communities of practice already play a key role in supporting learning and upskilling.

We are piloting a range of activities that support the community. In particular, we pilot:

  • Training activities: including webinars, workshops and open online learning resources according to identified curricula.
  • Creative Placements and Residencies: providing experience-based learning opportunities within organisations including galleries, libraries, archives, museums and heritage sites, as well as creative industries to develop skills and jointly explore the value and role of data.
  • Developing skills gap analysis to identify requirements with regards to skills training for digital research and practice in the realm of the Arts and Humanities.
  • Promoting open research practices and robust data management practices including enabling access to open data.
  • Identifying and signposting infrastructure and equipment which can be useful to develop skills.
