YouShare is designed to provide a platform to allow people to run compute-intensive research in an ordered way, recording what they have done.

More than this it is aimed to promote collaboration by allowing data, programs, and research outputs to be shared flexibly with others.

YouShare is a pilot service to see how such aims can be supported, and what barriers there are to operating such a service, and to determine how these barriers can be overcome.The goal is to provide an effective service for UK academia that provides a way to streamline research and collaboration, allowing UK research to be enhanced and improved.

YouShare will link into the shared UK academia compute facilities to provide additional resources to run compute jobs on behalf of researchers.
