As part of the Net Zero Digital Research Infrastructure Scoping project, we invite researchers and practitioners to come together in two ‘sandpit’ style events.
These sandpit events will be used to allocate the funding for involvement of the community in proof-of-concept studies and workshops. Evidence gathered from these activities will be used to inform recommendations and map a pathway for the implementation of the UKRI Net Zero strategic ambitions within the Digital Research Infrastructure.
Sandpit A will focus on community and organisational challenges such as: user facing services, data management, behaviour change, training, proportionality of energy use, who are the winners/losers, and monitoring and driving change.
Sandpit B will focus on technical and operational challenges such as: hardware procurement, design and architecture of infrastructure, cloud platforms, consolidation, power management and efficiency, end-of-life, and carbon capture and offsetting.
Further details and how to apply can be found on the project website.
Please note that the deadline for funding to help @UKRI_News digital research infrastructure reach net zero has been extended to Thursday 28th 1pm
Deadline to apply:
1pm on Thursday 28th April 2022
The sandpit events are managed by the Centre for Environmental Data Analysis (CEDA) on behalf of UKRI as part of the UKRI Net Zero Digital Research Infrastructure Scoping project.
For all enquiries, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and put “Net Zero Sandpit” in the subject line.
