Good management of research data lays the foundation for a successful research project. Find tools, information, and services for every phase of your research project on the recently updated RDM portal.
What is RDM?
Research data management (RDM) is about the correct handling, storing, documenting, preserving, sharing and legal care of research data, using the FAIR principles as a guide. Applying good data management practices helps to prevent data from becoming unfindable, unusable or even lost. We have recently updated the RDM portal to reflect new developments in data management practices, data stewardship and funder policies.

The portal provides you with information and tools for data management throughout the research cycle:
