Linking community and technology to enable FAIR data
In short, data management can be defined as the creation, storage, maintenance, disclosure, archiving and sustainable preservation of research data. Not only would it be terrible if all your important research data would be lost. And not only can you save a lot of time if you can retrieve your data more easy. But if we can connect data sets, we can see the bigger picture, find solutions that cannot be found in specialized areas alone. Innovation happens where disciplines meet. The innovative power of research depends on our ability to connect datasets.
DataHub offers the tools and services to help you with this.
“Onze elektronenmicroscopen genereren ongeveer 1 terabyte per dag. Om die data op te slaan gebruiken we de door de UM ontwikkelde dienst DataHub, waar ik ook als ontwikkelaar bij betrokken ben. Dat is een veelzijdige dienst, die ook metadata opslaat. Maar we willen die data niet alleen intern opslaan, maar ook delen met collega’s binnen én buiten onze universiteit.” Lees meer...

A simple way to get started with research data management.
For researchers that work with personal data or want to take research data management one step further.
For researchers that want to leverage the power of data and dive deep into data sets.

At DataHub, we provide data management services for (non-) clinical studies. DataHub is an institutional data broker that provides data management services to researchers from the academic hospital and university. Our cross-organisational infrastructure enables researchers from multiple disciplines to reuse valuable data from the hospital, the university, and beyond. DataHub works according to the FAIR principles, which specify that data and metadata should be findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable. We continuously improve our services in order to provide added value to researchers who want to do more with their data.
The development of the Datahub system untill dec 2018
Cyber attack update
Although your data at DataHub was not affected by the recent cyber attack, we are currently re-enabling our systems and have our RDM portal operational as soon as possible.
DataHub software version 3.0.0. released
A major update of the DataHub infrastructure has taken place. Most of the changes involve fixes for security, stability and functionality of the backend infrastructure. We are happy to announce several improvements in the self-service portal for users of our infrastructure.
Users can now request new DataHub projects more easily through a self-service form, which replaces the existing Word document. Coupled with a revised workflow for project creation, our data stewards can easier approve and create your project which is less time consuming.
No queu for ingests
The parallel ingest functionality makes it possible to run multiple ingests at the same time. Waiting for other users to finish their ingests should only occur at very busy times.
Change project permissions. Users with the manager-role can now update or set permissions for users on their projects. Look for the blue “Change project permissions” button in the projects browser.
One of the research institutes that we work with, HVC, created this testimonial video on the collaboration with DataHub.
