JISC (United Kingdom)

Christopher Brown

I am a Programme Manager in the Digital Infrastructure team at JISC with responsibility for the Access and Identity Management (AIM) and the Virtual Research Environment (VRE) programmes.

The AIM programme aims to focus on process, policy and technology, exploring innovative new areas in all three and forming a natural complement to work being completed under the Services banner on the UK federation.

The purpose of the VRE programme is to define and help to develop the frameworks and associated standards and to encourage the development and population of VREs with applications, services and resources appropriate to the needs of researchers.
