Are you a USER or a JOINER?

EUDAT enables European researchers and practitioners from any research discipline and any geographical location to preserve, find, access, and process research data in a trusted environment. EUDAT is building a European collaborative data infrastructure (CDI), a distributed network of data-related services, provided by Europe’s most powerful scientific data centres, which enhance research collaborations based on electronic data. Furthermore, thanks to these integrated infrastructures, research communities will be able to collaborate with each other across Europe and even globally. What is the EUDAT CDI (Collaborative Data...
