The role of information and communications technology in research capacity building
BRENNAN, NIAMH
Reliable, accessible, high speed Internet and network connectivity is a fundamental requirement for the conduct of high quality, high-impact research today. High speed communications are part of the basic infrastructure of a modern university, supporting efficient administration, ensuring a global presence on the web and helping with managing student information systems. The focus of this chapter is on those elements of the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) infrastructure which are directly relevant to RCB; specifically National Research and Education Networks, Research Support Systems and Digital Repositories, and finally e-Learning technologies that support research-led teaching. A key theme running through this chapter is that of collaboration and the need for a cooperative approach both within and among institutions in order to deliver a robust and cost-effective ICT infrastructure.
