Online info session: figshare field trip to UCT

20 Mar 2018 - 10:00

UCT will be hosting an online figshare field trip on Tuesday 20 March, 2018.

During the field trip, we will share some of our highlights and challenges with the implementation process, with a focus on the difficulties encountered, and how we’ve tackled them. We will also provide an update on our current engagement strategy, as well as speak towards the possibility of initiating a constructive support group for South African institutions embarking on the figshare implementation journey.

Two of our champion research groups, ROER4D and CeBER, will also provide an update on how they've been using the institutional figshare repository.

If you are able to join us, please see further information below. Please also feel free to send any specific questions, or talking points that you’d like to hear addressed during the discussion session at the end of the field trip.
