TRE Satellite Event notes - Community management#
What tools & methods are we using to communicate?
What are the areas that we should initially focus on?
Who is involved?
What should this community space be used for?
What are our key principles for collaboration?
The other stuff is exciting but we can’t do it without organising our community
Community organisation needs resource
We have conversations all the time but how do we manage follow-up
How do we ensure a balanced conversation? Engineers, managers, data people, researchers, members of the public
We need to build a community and then worry about management
Who is in the community? What’s the purpose of the community?
Different uses/purposes for the TRE - e.g. different kinds of data
We can’t do it all at once - so how do we prioritise?
Groupings around what people want - sharing of best practice etc - ensuring cross-pollination between groups
Turing Way - could have some kind of ‘hub’
What do we do until we have someone who’s job this is?
How do we stay impartial/independent? How do we maintain perspective?
The role of co-ordination doesn’t necessarily set the strategic direction
Assessing the national discussion/ongoing work around TREs
How did RSEs do it?
Survery of engineers and users
Interoperable data standards
Agree on a purpose for the community?
Agree on target audience for the community?
Baselining survey - who has done what?
Size of team
Who are the end users/researchers
How big are your projects? value, number of researchers?
What are your IG processes?
What stack do you use? E.g. aws, azure
Are you open?
Cloud based or on prem?
Are you working with any other teams collaboratively?
What is the underlying software?
Ask for time/money from host institutions
Clarify this in terms of amounts/time/numbers
Get ideas/thoughts from communities that have done this successfully (e.g. RSECon)
