Data Management

Research data management (RDM) is an essential component of scientific research. It concerns the process of collecting, processing, protecting, storing, and sharing your research data. Good RDM is important for many reasons. For instance, it helps you to:

  • Handle personal and sensitive data in an appropriate way
  • Protect against data loss and preserve scientific knowledge 
  • Improve the findability and impact of your research
  • Allow others to validate and replicate your findings
  • Avoid errors and save time and resources 
  • Comply with the requirements of funders, GDPR, data policies of your institution, and the Code of Conduct for Research Integrity

The DCC provides support in managing your data throughout the different phases of your research.
