Research data

Research Data Policy

The Swedish government aims are that open access to research data should be fully implemented by 2026. This is in line with EU policies, Horizon 2020 and several other progressive research funders mandates. The Government has appointed the Swedish Research Council (VR) to coordinate the continued work on open access to research data. Together with Swedish National Data Service (SND) and the National Archives and other relevant authorities they will support the development of archiving and long term preservation of research data at universities.

The BTH Data Access Unit

One important fulcrum on the road to open access to research data is the implementation of Data Access Units (DAUs) at the local universities. The DAU can support the local researcher with data management plans, information on funder policies, government requirements, rights management issues, storage facilities, knowhow about meta data and support with tools for documentation etc. The DAU is also serving as a node for information and skills transfer vis-a-vis SND and VR. Research data represents a major public investment that may benefit other scholars than the original creator. But this is only true if they are well documented and managed for reuse.
