Description

With a network of more than 20 European research organisations, data and computing centres in 14 countries, the EUDAT Collaborative Data Infrastructure (CDI) is one of the largest sustainable infrastructure of integrated data services and resources supporting research in Europe. EUDAT CDI is designed to address the full lifecycle of research data, representing a strategic solution to the challenge of data proliferation in Europe’s scientific and research communities. It is realised through an ongoing collaboration between Service Providers and Research Communities working as part of a common framework for developing and operating an interoperable layer of common data services. It is a growing organisation based on a contractual agreement between its members, signed for an initial period of 10 years. The current sustainability model relies on a Partnership Agreement in which the CDI members sustain the collaboration and its services with a yearly fee. The EUDAT CDI suite of data management services supports researchers and research communities to ensure their data is FAIR compliant and promote open access to data. EUDAT promotes the release of data under standard licenses, with the long-term aspiration that all data in the CDI should become fully open access. Access to data in the CDI is free at the point of use. Nationally and globally, the CDI: • Supports research providing a trustworthy, collaborative and interoperable data infrastructure. • Assists researchers and research organisations with essential training and consultancy on Research Data Management. • Enhances the integration between HPC and the storage infrastructure. • Offers additional business opportunities to the service providers part of the CDI. • Builds the backbone of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC).
