About MMC Ltd
In recent years research funders and policy makers have become increasingly concerned about research data - its collection, management, storage re-use and access requirements. There is high-level recognition that ‘data-driven science’ is likely to be critical in our response to the so-called Grand Challenges. However, in practical terms this requires a substantial increase in technological capabilities and a huge shift in the culture of many research disciplines. In turn, there are profound implications for the supporting stakeholders of the research communication and dissemination industry (publishers, learned societies, universities, librarians, funders, start-ups).
Working with both commercial and not-for-profit partners, we would be happy to work with you to gauge your needs and tailor the resulting work plans, outcomes and deliverables according to your audience, time-frame, budget or other key factors. We are well used to working in both commercial and academic environments – one of our core strengths is the ability to communicate a wide range of stakeholders’ needs and drivers across the spectrum.
