SciLifeLab launches FAIR Storage and opens for project applications
Life science research is increasingly data-driven. This enables new knowledge and insights not possible just a decade ago. Access to compute and storage infrastructure is key for this research development. SciLifeLab has recently launched a new service to promote FAIR data sharing by offering storage allocations linked to active data management plans and the publishing of digital research outputs. The service is referred to as ‘SciLifeLab FAIR Storage’ and is now open for applications in SUPR, the Swedish User and Project Repository, in Rounds 2023.
Announced at the DDLS Annual Conference, SciLifeLab Data Storage is now open for applications until Dec 31st. The prerequisites for applicants include good Research Data Management (RDM) Practices, such as proper documentation, metadata, and to initiate and maintain a Data Management Plan. The researchers should also adhere to established data repository standards and guidelines, making their data available through repositories that align with FAIR principles and assign persistent identifiers ( PIDs) to all research outputs.
“We encourage researchers to use these resources for collaborative efforts by facilitating data sharing and collaboration within and beyond research groups. Proper documentation and good research data management practices are integral for SciLifeLab storage resource allocations, and these elements are also key to ensuring data reuse, and maximizing the value of research. To foster an environment of cooperation and knowledge exchange is an important part of this initiative,” says Hanna Kultima, Vice Head of SciLifeLab Data Centre.
The SciLifeLab FAIR Storage is part of the newly developed resources made possible through the SciLifeLab and Wallenberg Research Program for Data-Driven Life Science (DDLS) that enables life science research previously not possible.
