Advance Notice - Symplectic upgrade w/c 15 August 2016

Due to planned maintenance work Symplectic will be unavailable from 15-19 August 2016. The system will be upgraded to version 5.1.1, which has a new look and feel as well as additional functionality.  During this time, it may be possible to  login to the system, but a full re-index (which takes several days) will run after the upgrade and a number of pages will be unavailable. Similarly, any changes made may not be saved. More information will be posted on the Research Information website over the next few weeks.

New Concordat on Open Data launched

RCUK, HEFCE, Wellcome Trust and Universities UK have issued a new joint Concordat on Open Research Data , which sets out expectations and principles for working with and sharing research data. The Concordat has been developed with researchers and aims to encourage and support the sharing of research data where appropriate. If you have any questions about the Concordat please get in touch with the Research Data Management Team (info@data.cam.ac.uk).
