Find Out Friday: Susan Ivey, “An Introduction to NC State’s new Research Facilitation Service”
October 21 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
NC State’s Research Facilitation Service (RFS), a joint endeavor on the part of University Libraries, OIT and ORI, is available to help researchers navigate a broad range of possible research solutions to conduct efficient and secure research. The RFS partners with existing research computing and data providers on campus to meet NC State’s research needs, maintains knowledge about available community resources, and monitors emerging technologies and unmet needs to advocate for areas of potential growth at the university. The RFS is currently in a pilot phase with the College of Sciences (COS) to build its internal workflows, refine processes with OIT and COS IT members, learn more about campus needs, and understand how to scale and scope the RFS. During this short presentation, we’ll provide background and context for the creation of the service, as well as details about our pilot process with COS and how researchers outside of the college can reach us to request more information. We will address requests from outside of COS as our capacity allows.
