The New EUI Data Repository: a solution for archiving and sharing research data

The new EUI ResData repository was launched at the Library’s open access roundtable in October 2017 and already hosts twelve substantial EUI research datasets. ResData provides EUI scholars with a sustainable solution for archiving research datasets, and supports the European Union’s mandate that – where possible – research data outputs be openly shared. Open data – a key pillar of open science – refers to the trend among scholars, government agencies and international organisations to share datasets, codebooks and software via the internet.

Research Data Management in Italy

The Research Data Alliance (Europe) hosts a two-day workshop on research data management and open data on 14-15 November. Sessions are live-streamed from the Università di Firenze. The workshop is organised in collaboration with the universities of Bologna, Milano, Parma, Torino and Trento with the support of the Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche, Associazione italiana per la promozione della scienza aperta and OpenAIRE. The workshop brings together researchers, data managers and librarians to share experiences regarding the discovery, management, elaboration, re-use, and reproducibility of research data. The EUI Library is represented at the workshop.
