This Implementation Story looks at research data management service provision at the University of Manchester, and how their service offering has developed over time in response to researcher needs, changes in the RDM environment, and the drive to help researchers make their data more FAIR. Based on an interview with three University of Manchester staff involved in RDM at the institution, the Story charts how capabilities for data stewardship and research software engineering are increasingly coordinated with a mature RDM service, detailing the strategic goals, roles, workflows and further service implementations.
