Abstract This paper will describe how two research-intensive universities in the UK, St Andrews and Glasgow, have worked together over several years and projects to develop their institutional research management systems to deliver services to support the rapidly evolving needs of funders, institutional policy makers and management, and, importantly, the researchers themselves. This challenge is particularly acute at the moment with ‘Open Science’ one of the hottest topics around with organisations and funders from the G81 downwards stressing the importance of open data in driving everything from global innovation through to more accountable governance; not to mention the more direct possibility that non-compliance could result in research grant income drying up. There is a need to work with those researchers that need support to develop research data management processes and infrastructures that complement their ways of working and not just impose box-ticking exercises. We will explain the strategies, systems developed, and concerns arising to date at our two Universities to help support researchers and managers in this (r)evolution.
