Title: Research IT: Engaging and Supporting Campus Research Through Innovative and Sustainable Services
Description: Research IT, a division of Information Services & Technology (IST), partners with campus researchers on research computing and data science projects and provides computing and data management services to campus research. This poster session will summarize our collaborations across a number of campus domains, from biodiversity informatics projects with the Berkeley Natural History Museums, to digital humanities, science and engineering. We provide a broad range of services including research data management; application architecture, design, development, and hosting; consulting and grant-writing; and museum and digital collections. We also act as a liaison to other IST services such as backup and storage. In addition, we will describe our newest initiative, a partnership with the VCRO and LBNL to expand our research computing services to areas such as High Performance Computing, Cloud Computing, and virtual workstations.
