Throughout the summer, 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. Alisa Miller speaks about her project – and neologism – a consortial approach to building an integrated Research Data Management System.

We've recently launched a call to find 50 of the most influential HE professionals on social media. We've been hearing from all kinds of academics and lecturers about the ways in which they use social media to generate change or improve things in their institutions - but what do the students think? And what ideas do they have about how social media can support their education? We took the opportunity to speak to some students taking part in Jisc's Summer of Student Innovation to find out.
