About us

The Facilitation team can help researchers access and use all the Digital Research Services available at the University of Edinburgh.

Digital Research Services offer a single point of access for data and computing services at the University of Edinburgh. The resources and support are organised in line with the research lifecycle, from the planning phase of your research project to the publication of research outputs, sharing, and preservation of datasets. Such services enable world-class research, support discoveries, and improve research outcomes.

The Research Facilitation team can help you navigate the complex Digital Research Services landscape through tailored advice and support. The team also organises events, training and networking opportunities across disciplines and domains. Get in touch if you’d like to scale up your research, develop your digital skills or become part of the digital research community.
