Organizing National Research Data Management Services/ "We can work it out”: Collaborating on Research Data Management Services
Organizing National Research Data Management Services
The purpose of Swedish National Data Service (SND) is to provide a coordinated and secure structure for describing, depositing, sharing, and finding research data. SND is governed by a consortium consisting of seven universities: University of Gothenburg, Karolinska Institutet, Lund University, Stockholm University, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, Umeå University, and Uppsala University. From 2018 to 2022 SND will undergo major changes to develop, grow, and expand its activities. Key activities include the development a secure system for restricted data (sensitive information) and handling BIG data for other major infrastructures. The organization supports nearly 30 universities in developing and running local data access units (DAUs) to support the researchers in their preparations of the research data and meta data
“We can work it out”: Collaborating on Research Data Management Services
UiT The Arctic University of Norway devotes much focus and resources on Open Science, in particular open access to publications and open research data. Navigating in a landscape of rapid change, collaboration is key to raise awareness, create engagement, enhance competence, and make things move forward. In this talk, we focus on the development of support services for research data management within the frame of an institutional policy adopted in 2017. We pay particular attention to the collaboration between the research administration, the IT department and the University Library, which has proven successful for UiT at the institutional, national, and international level.
