UKRI Net-Zero Digital Research Infrastructure (DRI) Scoping Project

Funder: Natural Environment Research Council (NERC)

Dates: 2021-23


This project will provide a clear roadmap to deliver carbon neutral digital research infrastructure (DRI) by 2040 or earlier. This covers the entire DRI estate for UK Research and Innovation. To find out more about the UKRI Net Zero DRI project, visit the project website.

CEDA role: 

The core project team will lead an initial, 18-month UKRI-wide study to survey the digital carbon landscape, run a set of demonstrators and develop a roadmap to ensure that our data infrastructure can achieve net zero. Taking a systems-based approach, CEDA will work to develop adaptation strategies for the way data is conserved, analysed and managed.
