The RePosit project will support researchers at the project partner institutions through advocacy activities and training workshops. It will also engage with them via the survey questionnaire which will solicit feedback on the usefulness of the deposit tool, and other places where it should be made available to them. The project will engage with research organisers and managers in a similar way, offering the project workshops and user community space as forums for determining the appropriate strategy for increasing uptake, enhancements to the software, and methods of driving policy change. The user community space is intended for all members of the deposit community, not just those at the partner institutions.
