Researching The Future

Science and technology have always supported one anther. But science tends to move a bit slower than technology, and for good reason.

I've been spending the last year working on tools to help science move faster by creating systems to support scientific research. This talk explores what the future holds for scientific research and discoveries.

  12. • Encourages scientific enquiry and debate • Promotes innovation and

    potential new data uses • Leads to new collaborations between data users and data creators • Maximises transparency and accountability • Enables scrutiny of research findings • Encourages the improvement and validation of research methods • Reduces the cost of duplicating data collection • Increases the impact and visibility of research • Provides credit to the researcher as a research output in its own right • Provides great resources for education and training why share data? http://www.data-archive.ac.uk/create-manage/planning-for-sharing/why-share-data
