4TU.ResearchData manages a data repository for technical-scientific research data that stores the data in a permanent and sustainable manner, following the guidelines of the international Data Seal of Approval. As a Trusted Digital Repository, we guarantee researchers that we take appropriate measures to ensure the availability and quality of the data, which we make available for the long term.
4TU.ResearchData supports Open Science and in that context the FAIR data principles to make research data Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable (FAIR). This means that our data have a persistent identifier, are citable, are readable by humans and machines as much as possible, and have a license that guarantees openness and reusability.
Every researcher who has completed, technically scientific research data can upload this research data in our data repository.
Research funders (e.g. the EC in Horizon2020, NWO, ZonMw) are increasingly adopting grant conditions with regard to the management and publication of research data. The reason behind this is that research data, produced in the context of a publicly funded research project, should be freely made available for reuse and verification.
