03/24/2022 11:15 03/24/2022 12:15 How collaboration between academic research and IT teams strengthens projects – with results

In collaboration with Phoenix Software

Empowering research teams to analyse and explore data is key to uncovering new truths and patterns and accelerating discoveries. But what does it take to get there in a modern world of technological advances, big data, and secure trusted research environments?


Across academic research, often the main goal is to make an impact, and to do so, walls and barriers must be broken down and modern ways of working adopted. This is exactly the approach that the University of Stirling has taken by fully involving IT teams, data scientists, and research teams to ensure that its work delivers innovations and results that matter. 

Join Phoenix – Microsoft’s UK Partner of the Year 2021 – and the University of Stirling as they explore the incredible work the university is doing to allow researchers to achieve greater results faster and modernise using the power of the cloud.
