The SciLifeLab Data Centre provides the SciLifeLab platforms with services for IT and data management. We also work to facilitate the communication between SciLifeLab platforms, their users, and the research community, and develops databases and tools. The purpose is to maximize the scientific impact of SciLifeLab generated data and provide a good helpful IT environment for the SciLifeLab platforms and their users.
SciLifeLab’s technology platforms provide a wide range of high quality experimental support to researchers, and generate massive amounts of data. The impact of this data, and the long-term visibility and usefulness of what the platforms can deliver depends to a high degree on how the data is managed, and on the design of the whole study from start to finish.
By following principles of Open Science and striving to make our data FAIR, SciLifeLab Data Centre will help researchers to fulfil requirements on open access and data publishing posed by funders or scientific journals. The Data Centre is a service for SciLifeLab platforms and external researchers.
