Title ReDBox DLC and the Research Activity Portal
Synopsis The RDS sponsored Research Activity ID (RAiD) is a persistent identifier in the Research Data Life Cycle, linking research activities to researchers, data infrastructure and services. The QCIF team have now integrated the RAiD into the ReDBox platform as a key identifier in its new data management features. This new ReDBox is the platform driving the Research Activity Portal (, a RAiD service that we will demonstrate in this showcase session.

Statement of Research Impact Through the ReDBox DLC researchers will have a flexible data management platform which gives them multiple channels for acquiring data infrastructure and services, managing data, collaborating around data and services, and publishing data. The RAiD provides a consistent key in ReDBox for tying research activities to people, infrastructure and data.
