About the eResearch Initiative (eRIn)

In July 2015 the NWU officially commenced with an eResearch drive that will ultimately help to align research support units and researchers across all disciplines to embrace the power of the digital world in the 21st century.  A NWU eReserach Initiative workgroup from IT, Library and Research and Research Support Office together with Anelda van der Walt has been established.
