Despite the fact that 4TU.ResearchData is a joint venture between 3 of the 4 universities of the 4TU Federation,
- Delft University of Technology
- University of Twente
- Eindhoven University of Technology
every researcher from the Netherlands and abroad who has research data in the technical sciences can upload this data to our data repository.
The difference between researchers from a partner institution or from another university or institution is the quantity of research data they can archive for free.
Every researcher can upload up to 10 GB of data per year to the 4TU.ResearchData-archive free of charge. By default, this data will be available via Open Access and be stored for a minimum of 15 years. Your data will be stored in three different locations to ensure its safety.
- Are you a researcher at Eindhoven University of Technology, the University of Twente or TU Delft and do you have research data from ongoing or completed research?
The costs for depositing up to 1 TB of your research data will be reimbursed by your university. For depositing larger data collections, a discount of 20% on the total storage price will be applied.
- Are you a researcher at another research institution and do you have research data from ongoing or completed research?
You can deposit up to 10 GB of data free of charge. For depositing larger data collections, we recommend to consult the research data management service desk of your own institution.
