Throughout the summer at Jisc we’ve been conducting interviews with various projects that are part of the research data spring, to find out more about their work, their backgrounds, and how they’ve found the process.
In this series of interviews, we take the time to dig a little deeper into the thinking behind these projects, and get to know a little more about the work, and the people, behind them.
Simon Coles, associate professor at the University of Southampton, is helping to develop a project called CREAM (collaboration for research enhancement by active metadata). It looks at changing and improving the way researchers use metadata, which is data that summarises basic information about data. It can make finding and working with data easier for researchers.
