Welcome to UWC’s eResearch Office Website!

Welcome to UWC’s eResearch Office Website! In what is very much a sign of the times we live in, we are glad to be able to inaugurate our web site very much ‘remotely’. UWC’s eResearch Office was set up on 1st April 2019 to promote and support the use of advanced information technologies to foster better, faster and higher-impact research. If anything, the current world-wide crisis has renewed the importance of such an effort, and we are looking forward to working more closely with our partners on campus, nationally and internationally to fulfill this vision. Our website will grow in time to provide resources for researchers and news about data intensive research and research data management activities at UWC. In the meantime, please get in touch with us at if you would like more information.
