We are starting on a trial of CKAN for Research Data Management and are wondering whether in addition to Bristol and Lincoln there are any other universities that are using CKAN as part of their RDM infrastructure. We'd be very much interested to find out how others are using CKAN or planning to use it. Do you just use individual components, or are you planning to implement the whole package with all of its components? 

One of the areas that we would like to investigate is the use of CKAN as a research data repository. Are there already organisations that are implementing or planning to implement the CKAN file store and data store as part of their solution? If so, would it be possible, please, to share experiences with us?

Many thanks
