workshops to develop priorities
•The digital research community explores how technology innovation can help improve current research practices and enable leading research with global impact, cutting across disciplines, mission groups and geography.
• The community is for researchers, research leaders, research managers and other professionals involved in facilitating research, such as researcher developers, research software engineers, library and IT staff.
•It is a forum for showcasing and sharing practice, for discussing ideas and concerns related to technology innovation for research, and for encouraging collaboration and unified approaches where appropriate.
•It is a place for discussion of concerns and sharing of ideas across a full spectrum of activities related to the research process. It considers where technology solutions might alleviate concerns and support objectives, as well as the culture, skills and processes for effective implementation of those solutions.
•Our community supports our members to solve problems and learn from each other’s experience by providing an open and trusted environment to interact with peers about how technology supports research.
•We tap into the collective wisdom of the group and actively share our insights with the wider world through content in various forms.

After KF active involvement in virtual workshops July - November , JISC will be announcing the ‘launch’ of the community at a webinar on 15th December 2020 to the wider community and opening up a mailing list for those interested to join .
