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.
- 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.
- work with a workplan which they determine in consultation with the faculty based on the needs and priorities of the faculties;
- help with the development of RDM policies on either department or research group level.
- writing your data management plan,
- advise you about storing, sharing and securing your research data
- with publishing, archiving and registering research data.
Contact your faculty's data steward.
- FAIRification of datasets,
- grants data management section on FAIR,
- 4TU.ResearchData FAIR Data Fund applications,
- guidance on making research data FAIR.
In 2021 the DCC has developed the following tools, platforms and guidelines for you:
- AREDA for secure long-term archiving of your research data
- UT DMP tool: Data Management Plan tool for data management plans
- Decision tree "Storage of research data" to find the best solution for storing research data during research.
- Virtual Research Environment VRE
- A UT-wide data analysis platform on-site
- SRAM, a service to manage access to research resources over the borders of the UT (connected to a new research data storage platform NextCloud).

Following FAIR principles brings a great deal of benefits to the academic community as well as individual researchers, research organizations and funders:
- Achieving maximum potential from research data.
- Achieving maximum impact from research.
- Increasing the visibility and citations of research.
- Improving transparency in research and thus enabling reproducibility, replicability, and reliability of research.
- Speeding up discoveries and revealing new insights into the research, thus facilitating new research questions to be answered.
- Staying aligned with international standards and approaches.
- Attracting new partnerships with researchers, business, policy, and broader communities.
- Staying up to date with new innovative research approaches and tools.
