You are here
The Collaborative Assessment of Research Data Infrastructure and Objectives (CARDIO) is a benchmarking tool that enables you to:
- collaboratively assess data management requirements, activity, and capacity at your institution
- build consensus between data creators, information managers and service providers
- identify practical goals for improvement in data management provision and support
- make a compelling case to senior managers for investment in data management support
A quick to use 3-page roadmap matrix provides three groups of three capabilities that describe a service in line with the RCUK common principles on research data policy. These capabilities are informed by the EPSRC data policy expectations of institutions it funds. The matrix can be used to structure a meeting between Library, IT and Research Support colleagues to plan a roadmap or action plan towards a live service. It is available to download in a Word doc version for editing.
Taking it further
Our online tool provides a more detailed set of 30 capabilities that describe a mature data management service. We offer support to use this tool, so if you'd like to use CARDIO for an in-depth self- assessment of your institution's service offering, please get in touch with us at email@example.com.
