Today marks the first day of Online Information, an annual event in London for information professionals. Digital Science is a gold sponsor of this year’s event, and both Mark Hahnel of Figshare and Euan Adie of Altmetric will be joining panels lending their experiences to sessions on working in the cloud and metrics. (More at the end about where you can see them.)

Our Managing Director Timo Hannay recently sat down for an interview to share his insights on how those in the research community are grappling with today’s myriad of information challenges. The video helps set the scene for this week’s event as well as explain our work (and that of our portfolio) in this space.
