The next Research Data Scotland User Forum will be held on Tuesday, February 15 between 2.00 pm and 3.30 pm. You can register today to attend to hear the latest updates from RDS Chief Executive, Prof Roger Halliday and share your views on our service to researchers. 

Prof Halliday said: "We believe RDS’s services will be essential in the post-COVID environment when we seek to enhance health, wellbeing and the economy, and to support data driven innovation. Transforming the Scottish Government’s use of data will drive efficiency and improve public services with research at the core of this innovation. 

“That is why it is so important that we place RDS users at the centre of all our thinking to understand what they are seeking from RDS to help them achieve their research goals and the User Forum provides them with an opportunity to voice their views and influence the journey we are all on."
