There is no way to deny it: in science there is an increasing focus on sharing research data and code. The guiding principle for data sharing by both scientific institutions and research funders, such as NWO, is increasingly “as open as possible, as closed as needed”. WUR also included this principle in its strategic plan.
The research data and data applications that WUR offers are made accessible through the Data Portal. We showcase some inspiring examples of research in the new blog series WUR shares Data.
WUR shares Data
For WUR shares Data we talk to current and former WUR researchers, whose datasets are in the spotlight on the portal. This blog series has kicked off with an interview on the LUCID portal with Niki de Sy. She's an assistant professor at the Laboratory of Geo-information Science and Remote Sensing. What is her opinion on data sharing? Does she encounter barriers? And how can we, the data@wur team, provide support? Read the blog fo find out!
