We’re excited to announce that figshare will be sponsoring one librarian from a New Zealand university library to travel and contribute to the eResearch New Zealand 2018 conference due to be held in Queenstown, 12-14th Feb.
**Update, as eResearch NZ have extended their abstract deadline to October 2, we have also extended our closing date to October 9, with the winners announced on October 16**
Figshare has been a supporter of the eResearch NZ conference for several years and will be sponsoring the event again next year. eResearch NZ brings together the expertise of IT, eResearch, library, research office, funders, government and technology providers to offer solutions to relatively new problems, from research data management to high performance computing, that can only be solved through collaboration. It is in recognition of the library’s integral role in support of research and its unique position to advise and influence policy that we want to support their attendance at the eResearch NZ conference.
