Recherche Data Gouv: An ecosystem for sharing and opening research data


Research is facing a major challenge: preserving, sharing and opening up data to promote open, more transparent and cumulative science for everyone, from research teams to society as a whole.

Handling research data is a critical issue for researchers, as well as an additional and complex workload.

Research data are still an underutilized asset, and worse, such data are all too often lost or simply unusable.Recherche Data Gouv was created to help research teams manage their data and make it FAIR: Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable.

Every contributor to the Recherche Data Gouv ecosystem helps extend the reach of French research by sharing and opening access to data.

Recherche Data Gouv aims to become a European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) service, offering access to shared and open research data to support reuse.
