UK Research and Innovation has initiated the DARE programme to consult on the requirements for a UK-wide federated, digital infrastructure for sensitive data research that has the confidence, and meets the needs of researchers, data controllers, and the public.

It will explore approaches for the next generation of Trusted Research Environments (TREs) that will enable fast and efficient sharing, linkage and advanced analysis of sensitive data in an ethical and secure manner. 

As part of the first phase of this work we have been running a listening exercise to understand the needs of researchers and those involved in research data infrastructure. CF (Carnall Farrar), a management consultancy and data science company, has been conducting interviews to explore the views of individuals.

About the workshops for researchers and research data infrastructure technologists: 

We are holding two separate workshops to further explore the views of researchers and individuals working in research data infrastructure respectively. These workshops will be run by CF.  

Both events will be a short presentation of findings from the discussions so far and focused on an open dialogue giving participants the opportunity to provide input. Members of the public are welcome to both events.
