This paper shares results from the Digital Curation Centre’s programme of Institutional Engagements (IEs), and describes how we continue to provide tailored support on Research Data Management (RDM) to the UK higher education sector.

Between Spring 2011 and Spring 2013, the DCC ran a series of 21 Institutional Engagements. The engagement programme involved helping institutions to assess their needs, develop policy and strategy, and begin to implement a range of RDM services.

We have conducted a synthesis and evaluation of the programme, analysing the types of assistance requested and the impact of our support. The findings and lessons to emerge from these exercises have informed our future strategy and helped reshape the programme.
