The work begins with a pilot phase, testing the feasibility of the registry and uncovering challenges that will need to be addressed if and when the registry is developed into a sustainable service. The pilot project team is working with nine UK data centres and the data repositories of nine UK universities to harvest their metadata and provide a consistent search and browse interface for locating research data.
