Nebraska faculty are invited to participate in a series of online listening sessions intended to shape the future of research data services and infrastructure at UNL. The series began in June and runs through July 16, with sessions organized around disciplinary topic areas.
Each session is structured to gather feedback from investigators who have similar data needs or work within scientific communities that have common data practices. Faculty are welcome to join multiple sessions. Participants can view the full schedule and register via the listening session website. Faculty unable to attend may provide feedback via a web form.
Sessions planned for July include:
- July 7, 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m.: Genomics and bioinformatics
- July 8, 9-10:30 a.m.: Mathematics and statistics
- July 9, 3-4:30: Imaging
- July 10, 9-10:30 a.m.: Genomics and bioinformatics (second session)
- July 13, 3-4:30 p.m.: Transportation
- July 14, 1-2:30 p.m.: Physics
- July 16, 9-10:30 a.m.: Sensitive data
Moderators will gather feedback from posing questions related to both personnel support and physical infrastructure needs, including data storage; processing and analysis infrastructure; software application needs; sensitive data requirements; archiving, curating and data repositories; funder and publisher requirements; and data consultation services. Participants may use breakout rooms to discuss other topics of interest.
“As we strive to meet the N|2025 goals to grow research, work across disciplines and collectively respond to grand challenges, we must ensure our research data infrastructure and personnel are equipped to meet the task,” said Jen Nelson, director of research strategy and infrastructure.
The sessions are hosted by the Office of Economic Development in partnership with the Holland Computing Center, University Libraries and University of Nebraska Information Technology Services.
