Report: “Next Generation Research Environments – Recommendations and Next Steps”

From the JISC Repository:

2017-07-22_09-38-24As part of Jisc’s co-design consultation, Jisc identified six potential challenges that face people working in education and research. The Next Generation Research Environments challenge was one of these six and stated: “We think it’s time to define the future of research environments and determine how such environments can support the current and future needs of researchers.”

Researchers continue to push the boundaries of research, throughout the research lifecycle, using the latest tools and technologies to support their work. Jisc asked the community whether the time has come to define what a next-generation research environment should look like and if modular solutions might satisfy the increasing demands of researchers.

This report was commissioned to investigate the issue in greater detail.
