ALL ACADEMICS AND STAFF AT UCSD
The Office of Research Affairs is pleased to announce a new resource to help faculty meet recent additional federal-research requirements, and to make powerful, money-saving assets available to support research. Federal agencies and other funders now require that you include a two-page Data Management Plan with your research proposals. Samples and guidance are available on the Office of Contracts and Grants Administration website: http://rci.ucsd.edu/dmp/index.html
The UC San Diego Research Cyberinfrastructure (RCI) can also help you store and preserve your valuable research data: http://rci.ucsd.edu/services/index.html
Through centralization of resources, RCI achieves economies-of-scale and improves our university's academic competiveness.
The RCI offers:
A Colocation Facility -- Energy-efficient, centrally managed datacenter space for hosting computer equipment.
Centralized Data Storage -- A centrally administered, high-performance disk-storage farm provides a cost-effective alternative to commercial storage clouds.
Data Curation -- Drawing on the combined expertise of the UC San Diego Libraries, SDSC, and Calit2, RCI provides software and services to store, analyze, preserve, and broadly disseminate research results.
Research Network -- An uncongested, leading-edge network facilitates research collaborations and data exchange.
Thanks to the collaborative efforts of the Chancellor's Office, the Office of Research Affairs, the San Diego Supercomputer Center, the UC San Diego Libraries, Academic Computing & Telecommunications, Calit2 and other campus groups, we are pleased to now have these labor- and money-saving resources available to our faculty.
