Data management advice for local organisations06-Jul-11UK Data Archive, University of Essex, Colchester

Are you managing your organisation's data well enough? Local and regional organisations undertaking research or evaluation face the challenge and expense of managing and storing their data in a professional manner — ethically, securely and sustainably.

To respond to this growing need, the UK Data Archive is offering advice and support to data owners in the public sector, local government, charity and business sectors so they can manage and preserve their research data to the highest standards.
