FAIR data management

The faculty stewards and central FAIR data steward can help you:
- to manage your research data before, during and after your research,
- to make working according to the FAIR principles as easy as possible for you.

We offer UT-researchers

- RDM-(policy) guidelines which you find in the UT Service portal
- RDM- support & (online) courses and training
- ICT facilities: tools, platforms to make your data management easy and secure. For example the UT DMP online tool.

Good Practices FAIR Data

Following FAIR principles brings a great deal of benefits to the academic community as well as individual researchers, research organizations and funders:

  1. Achieving maximum potential from research data.
  2. Achieving maximum impact from research.
  3. Increasing the visibility and citations of research.
  4. Improving transparency in research and thus enabling reproducibility, replicability, and reliability of research.
  5. Speeding up discoveries and revealing new insights into the research, thus facilitating new research questions to be answered.
  6. Staying aligned with international standards and approaches.
  7. Attracting new partnerships with researchers, business, policy, and broader communities.
  8. Staying up to date with new innovative research approaches and tools.
