Annual Report 2019Another year has gone by, and 2019 was an eventful year for SND. Read more in our latest annual report.

In the SND Annual Report for 2019 you can learn more about the operations and developments in SND in this past year. Some highlights are the addition of two new partners in the SND consortium (Chalmers University of Technology and KTH Royal Institute of Technology), and three new members in the SND network (University College Stockholm, Kristianstad University Sweden, and RISE Research Institutes of Sweden).

It has also been a productive year in terms of initiatives and participation in various projects, in the national SND work as well as in international collaborations. At home, SND has pursued a pilot project to test a workflow for local data management and storage, with a few of the higher learning institutes in the SND network. We have also completed a major development initiative in adapting the SND data description form to several subject areas. During 2019, SND has also commenced the large-scale development project DORIS, designated to create a comprehensive RDM system where researchers can publish their research data and make them accessible.

During 2019 the RDA (Research Data Alliance) has appointed SND a national node for RDA Europe, making SND a key player in Sweden in regards to RDA’s mission to make it easier for researchers to share and reuse data. Simultaneously, three new EU-funded infrastructure projects with SND participation have been initiated: ARIADNEplus, EOSC-Nordic, and SSHOC.

You can read more about all of this, our network activities, annual statistics from the SND research data catalogue, and more, in the 2019 SND Annual Report.
