BioSharing and cooperate on the collection and description of data repositories

Researchers need infrastructures that ensure a maximum of accessibility, stability and reliability in terms of working with and sharing data. Such infrastructures are being called research data repositories.Today, BioSharing and – Registry of Research Data Repositories have agreed, in a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), to map and describe the emerging data repository landscape in a joint effort.

The cooperation between the partners will help to build a comprehensive overview of data repositories worldwide, to (i) assist users in the navigation and search of both services, and (ii) maximize cross-references and exchange of records between the two services. This cooperation aims at developing a vital ecosystem of research data repositories and at maximizing the accessibility of research data for scholarship and society.
