Note: openRDM.eu was funded by EGI-ACE from 2020 till June 2023. The project is no longer running.
Funding agencies, journals, and academic institutions frequently require research data to be published according to the FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable) data principles. To achieve this, every step of the research process needs to be accurately documented, and data needs to be securely stored, backed up, and annotated with sufficient metadata to make it re-usable and re-producible.
The openRDM.eu service provided researchers with a turn-key research data management solution to achieve this goal!
openRDM.eu offered research data management as a service to the scientific community, based on the powerful openBIS platform.
In both cases, the system can be pre-customized for life science applications, supporting common data types like genomics, proteomics, imaging, or can be fully customized by the users. Finally, openRDM.eu also offered full integration with the popular Jupyter notebook server for data analytics in several popular programming languages like Python or R.
The openRDM.eu service is operated and maintained by an experienced team of system administrators and data management experts at Scientific IT Services of ETH Zurich. We have more than 10 years of experience in developing data management solutions for research groups at ETH Zurich and beyond, and provide the ETH Research Data Hub, as well as other RDM services at ETH Zurich.
openRDM.eu acknowledges financial support from the EGI-ACE project, which receives funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 101017567 for setting up a service similar to ETH’s internal RDM service for the larger European research community.
