Research Data

Scientific Research Data represent and provide huge resources for the scientific communities and for the innovation of the society in its whole. To facilitate the researching process, IT services must be available to support researchers at any stage of the research data life cycle, from the early stages of the project planning, throughout the entire project lifetime and beyond. 

NIRD is the new National e-Infrastructure for Research Data, owned and operated by Uninett Sigma2.
NIRD provides a flexible and secure facility for storing research data and offers software tools and
applications to collect, store, process such data, high performance computing systems and 
on-demand computing resources to meet the researchers needs and enable them to tackle 
their scientific challenges.
